On Friday Tord Gustavsen brought his Quartet to Birmingham again. I’d forgotten quite how good they are as a live unit. They gained a rousing ovation from a large audience at the CBSO Centre. Peter Bacon has reviewed the gig on his site The Jazz Breakfast so I won’t attempt a review here but do have a look at Pete’s review. I took some photos during the band’s soundcheck and you can see the best of them above.
On Wednesday Get the Blessing play at the Hare and Hounds. That’s another gig I am really looking forward to.
