Yesterday’s gig with The Adrian Astor Quintet went well – this time, we got the sunshine and so actually had some crowds to please.
We also welcomed a young trumpeter, Gideon, up to sit in for Cantaloupe Island. Pico and I heard him at the ‘Teeth gig on Thursday and were impressed by his musicianship so invited him over. I am not sure how old he is but I suspect it might be a few years before he starts shaving!
Anyway, he gets a sweet tone out of his horn and it was a pleasure to have him on stage. If he sticks with the music, he could be a name to watch out for in years to come so, as a note to myself, I gigged with Gideon Brooks (Brookes?) on 2 June 2007 anno domini.
Last gig of the weekend in a few hours time, so time to stop blogging and start practising!
