Beware of the bongos....

First of all, a reminder that we are playing at The Shakespeare Inn at Newport this Friday the 20th May. This is our first gig at what looks like a very nice venue so it would be good to see as many devoted followers of this website as possible in the audience. The evening kicks off at 8:30pm and admission is free (a bargain at twice the price!!).

In order to whet your appetite for your journey to Newport on Friday here are some tracks recorded just down the road by essentially the same line-up, on the first day of the 2008 (and only!) Edgmond Jazz & Folk Festival.


I've Found A New Baby

I'm Confessin'

Wild Man Blues

Black And Blue
And So To Sleep Again

Take The A-Train
Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen
 
Down With Love

Georgia On My Mind
 
Watermelon Man

The performers were Mike Gray (soprano & tenor saxes); Keith Crane (clarinet & tenor sax); Emily Floyd (vocals & tenor sax); Brian Jones (keyboard); Paul Hobbs (guitar); Dave Towers (bass) and Phil Asma (drums). One of the perils of an audience recording is the audience - hopefully the frequently audible "guest" percussionist (more notable for enthusiasm than technique!) won't spoil your enjoyment of some great playing!
