Smithville debut at The Basement supporting Sue Richardson, 30th August

We all had  great time playing a varied set of memorable tunes:
  • Jeannine (Duke Pearson)
  • Joel's Domain (David 'Fathead' Newman)
  • Eternally (George Benson)
  • Mr Kenyatta (Lee Morgan)
  • 502 Blues/Drinkin' & Drivin' (Jimmy Rowles)
  • Full House (Wes Montgomery)
People thought the band sounded great, particularly the combination of instruments - baritone, flute, organ & guitar. Hopefully a few more gigs on the horizon.

Thanks to Emily for the photos. Here's a video of Andy playing Eternally.

Really enjoyed Sue Richardson's set too. I particularly liked her flugelhorn playing. The band sounded great too - Andy William's long, flowing guitar lines, George Trebar's bass soloing, Sam Glasson's drumming and the very swinging piano style of Humphrey Lyttelton's pianist. Now what was his name?
