John Quail's best gig of 2014


Simon Fell Sextet at Marsden Jazz Festival

From John Quail - Marsden Jazz Festival

"My most memorable gig was the performance by the Simon Fell Sextet of Simon's Marsden Jazz Festival commission 'Ragging Time' on Saturday 11 October. Line up Percy Pursglove (tpt) Alex Ward (clt) Shabaka Hutchings (bs clt) Richard Compte (gtr) Paul Hession (dms) Simon Fell (dbs).  It was a triumph! We asked Simon to make New Orleans jazz dangerous, the devils music, the soundtrack of modernity. And he did! It's going out on Jazz on 3 sometime Jan/Feb 2015. Listen and be amazed...

Best wishes for the New Year

John
