The Vortex was treated to a game of two halves last night.
First up was Dudley Phillips playing solo bass; he played a number of renderings of others' tunes including a version of King Crimson's "I Talk To The Wind". Hello! That transported me back to 1971 when I first heard it.
Headlining were Dan Messore's Indigo Kid who have another album out; apart from Dan, there was Iain Ballamy on sax, Tim Harries on bass and Martin France on drums. It's the third time I've seen an ensemble led by Dan and the man just never disappoints with great fellow musicians and excellent songs. The bar staff were having a rare old time. Great stuff.
