Big Band Metheny @ Bull's Head, 25th May

Sorry to rattle on again about the Bulls Head, but...Sunday lunchtime, Bank Holiday weekend, a decent pint of bitter, a 16-piece big band to blow you out of your seat, the funkiest piano you'll ever hear from erstwhile Jools Holland guest Neil Cowley, ear-splitting trumpet from Gabriel Garrick, and generally top jazz. What's not to like?

Note to self: I'm liking these Pat Metheny tunes--another well-established musician I'm finding out about via the back door (see also Robert Wyatt below). There just aren't enough hours in the day to listen to ALL THIS MUSIC...

Other stuff:
- interview with Neil Cowley
