Boaters Live Jazz at Twenty-Two

Mornington Lockett, Simon Carter, Mike Bradley, Laurence Cottle
Boaters 21st October 2012

Two little ducks, twenty-two. The Sunday night gig by the Thames in Kingston is twenty-two years old. Congratulations to Simon Carter (out tonight at this friendly pub with Mornington Lockett, Laurence Cottle, and Mike Bradley). They played a storming, burning opener, Speak Low. The pin-point accuracy of a Mornington Lockett’s arrangement of Juan Tizol’s Caravan, played at ferocious speed, with alternating 5/4 and 4/4 bars made quite a few musicianly jaws drop. One of London’s very best free gigs. Long may it prosper.
