Sue and I hadn’t seen Mike Lovell’s ‘Six in a Bar’ band before, so it was a great pleasure to get to this gig, despite the police shutting the A666 for twenty minutes last night.

In fact, I think it must have been ‘Five in a Bar, Plus One’ as there was a stand-in for Phil Lucas, unless he’s aged a lot recently.
The highlight for me was Colin Turner’s bass saxophone, which seemed to me to be a more versatile instrument than the traditional double bass.
All in all, another great evening at Eagley Jazz Club, at which the next gigs are shown below.
