A couple of quick updates:
- I mentioned in my preview of this weekend’s GIOfest that there was no Thursday night jazz gig at Glasgow Art Club because the venue was being used for something else. Unfortunately, based on the normal “Edinburgh Jazz Bar on Wednesday, Glasgow Art Club on Thursday” timetable, it looks as if we’re missing out on a potentially excellent gig: Tom Bancroft’s Trio Red (Bancroft on drums with pianist Tom Cawley and bass player Per Zanussi). As well as the Jazz Bar tomorrow, they’re also playing at the Vortex in London tonight, and are apparently working on a second album.
- For those of us in Glasgow, tonight’s gig at Slouch in Bath Street is by the Phil Cardwell Sextet.
