Tad Newton’s Jazz Friends with Greg Abate
Venue: The Walnut Tree Inn, Blisworth, Northants.
Timeline: 12 noon, Sunday, 6 November 2011
Greg Abate - alto sax & flute
Tad Newton - trombone
Gary Wood - trumpet
Trevor Whiting - clarinet, alto and tenor sax
Mike Graver - piano
Tomas Pedersen - bass
Ronnie Fenn - drums
The Ellington Room at the Walnut Tree came alive with the first beat of this wonderful two-hour jazz session, superbly performed by these musicians.
Each band member gave his all and Greg inspired them throughout, to the delight of the audience. He played some beautiful numbers on alto and flute with the rhythm section and he and Trevor provided some sax duets cleverly played and great fun - enjoyed by both the band and those present.
This was the best of jazz; excellent solos and great ensemble work, individual musicians playing together as one.
Tad’s band and Greg belong together!
