Much enjoyed Greg Cordez’s quintet playing a CD launch gig (and some brand new tunes) last week – and feeling bad I didn’t get round to writing a review.
Never mind, there are a trio of nice videos from the gig now posted. In B&W – very atmospheric – but the sound is good. As we were in the back row and the camera was two seats to our right they have the added appeal, for me, that this is pretty much the vantage point I had on the night at the Wardrobe.
Anyhow, all three are worth your time, to hear one of the best combinations of the city’s players – Greg, Jake McMurchie, Pete Judge, Matt Brown and Steve Banks. Here’s the title track to get you going. But stick around on YouTube for the others and you’ll hear some fine acoustic bass, too.
