Aziza, Ronnie Scotts, Wednesday 7 Nov 2018

An outstanding gig, one of the best of the year at Ronnies that I’ve been lucky enough to catch. This band is full of seasoned professionals at the very top of their game: as Dave Holland commented, the first time he attended Ronnies it was before the move to Frith Street and he was just 17; that night it was Wes Montgomery. Over 50 years later, he was leading this fine band with Chris Potter, Eric Harland and Kevin Eubanks - Kevin, whom I’d never seen play before was a revelation. Top band. Don’t miss them if you get the chance.

Also a big shout for the Sara Dowling Quartet, whom I’ll be making sure I check out again in the future.
