George Colligan is one bad ass pianist! He was the guest of tenor saxophonist Terry Deane’s tonight at the club and it was really burning. Terry sounded wonderful as did Adam Thomas (bass) and Jesse Cahill (drums). As I write this they are ending the night with Giant Steps . I have to say in the 8 years I have been at the club I think this is a tune I have never heard performed here! Highlights of the night included a beautiful trio rendition of Everything Happens To Me
and a vicious romp through Herbie Hancock’s One Finger Snap. Terry really tore it up on that one and again as I write this he’s destroying the changes on Giant Steps
! Yeah! Hi energy jazz. I love it!
