excellent opportunity offered to music lovers with any degree of talent.

Terence Collie must be commended for the professional time he spends in encouraging musicians of any standard achieve their ambition.
Great support from Janet too.

Review of Tommaso Starace - Tribute to Michel Petrucciani

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

In spite of the fact that I'm not particularly a fan of Michel Petrucciani's music, this was a very enjoyable gig. Fortunately the choice of compositions meant that some of MP's more tepid material was avoided which, coupled with a number of less obvious covers, such as Bobby Timmons' "This Here", provided a very varied set. Great playing by guest alto man Tommaso (sometimes called Tomato apparently !), Hampton's favourite keyboard player, Terry C. and a very impressive Anglo-Italian rhythm section, topped off by Tommasso's very amusing banter. Can't wait for the next one.

I’m a regular at this monthly jazz event. Always a good night.This particular evening was old school very melodic jazz featuring Alan Barnes on reeds, with an excellent rhythm section. Lots of humour from Alan and nice Christmas vibes and free mince pies

Quite a coup for Mood Indigo to book the great Alan Barnes as the guest horn player for Christmas and he didn't disappoint running through a nice variety of standards backed by Hampton's favourite pianist, Terry Collie, and a star rhythm section. Maybe a little sedate for my personal taste but presumably the theory was not to upset punters in a festive mood with anything too adventurous. Nevertheless an excellent evening's entertainment enlivened by Alan's wonderful banter and mulled wine and mince pies provided by our hosts. Thorougly recommended.

Another fab night of hot jazz at the RAC hosted by Janet and Terry with the usual bonus of Terry's keyboard wizardry supporting the guest artist. Unlike some tenorists Josephine Davies has a relaxed, almost low-key style which actually suited the music of Joe Henderson (to which she was paying tribute) perfectly. Great choice of material from Joe's catalogue, and what can you say about the rhythm section when it comprises Andy Cleyndert on double bass and Clark Tracey on drums. Probably the finest combination I've experienced at the RAC in Mood Indigo's long record of showcasing great music.
