I must tell you, sadly, that Chris is unable to be with us, his father is very, very, unwell.
Our discussions on how to save the gig led us quickly to a unanimously agreed solution: You will remember that the youthful guitar player Joe Steels has `sat in` with the Quintet for the last three reunions and performed with increasing brilliance. So he will join tenor sax player Ed Kainyek in the front line. Chris, ever the leader, has given them some advice; and of course they will be superbly backed by pianist Andrzej Baranek, and the original dynamic duo: Rob Steels, double bass, and Jack Davies, drums.
I`m looking forwards to this format; it will have a different sound, but I know it will be great.
I hope you can be with us to share the experience.
