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...
