The Groundation may be no more but on this second-only UK appearance, Gary Crosby’s Quartet are worthy successors. Often taking well known bop tunes and jazz standards as the vehicle, the band delivered high quality music featuring the energetic and creative talents of saxophonist Steve Williamson and the rhythmic interpretations of Alex Ho on piano.
The overall impression was of a tight, cohesive band enjoying their unique brand of original jazz which thrilled the Pallant Suite audience. Gary expressed his sincere thanks for the opportunity of playing to such an appreciative crowd and welcomed the opportunity to do so again sometime. Hear, hear!
Line-up: Gary Crosby – bass, Steve Williamson – soprano and tenor saxophones, Alex Ho – piano, Eddie Hick – drums.
