We were promised a journey from New Orleans to Mainstream on the opening night of our 25th Anniversary Season, but were rewarded with so much more. A compelling and exciting Gabriel Garrick Quintet played not just great Dixieland jazz and blues but popular tunes from the bop era too. It was a first class performance with all musicians making significant contributions, especially pianist Jamie Salisbury a very late replacement for Wayne McConnell.
Line-up: Gabriel Garrick – trumpet, Mark Bassey – trombone, Milo Fell – drums, Dan Sheppard – bass, Jamie Salisbury – piano.
