The Bridge Hotel Review
Saturday, February 21st, 2015
DB Jazz Project + MojoRoller @ The Bridge Hotel. February 20th
DB Jazz Project: Dave Keighley (tenor, alto & soprano saxophones), Tom MacMillan (guitar), Adrian Sander (bass guitar) & Ben Grant (drums) + Mojo Roller: Chris Roe (guitar & vocals), Steve Caithness (bass guitar) & Chris Cassidy (drums).
(Review by Russell - bebop spoken here).
A jazz and blues double bill. The blues band up first. MojoRoller played it loud, blues rock trio loud. Matt Schofield (Don't Know What I'd Do), Robben Ford (Start It Up), the pattern set © unremittingly, ear-splittingly loud, guitar/vocal-lead blues rock.
Kings Freddie and Albert and Chris Roe's main man SRV (Stevie Ray Vaughan) made it abundantly clear where these guys were coming from and you either went with them or © no one did © you got off at the next stop. Roe's Stratocaster tore it up, the bass and drums team of Steve Caithness and Chris Cassidy a rock-solid foundation. MojoRoller need to be heard again © either toned down or in a larger venue!
The downstairs bar at the Bridge was doing good business (about ten deep at the bar) and no wonder, Schiehallion's Bitter and Twisted was on the bar. It didn't last long.
The jazz set. The DB Jazz Project, a quartet (three quarters round-the-block vets, one quarter new kid on the block) formed by Dave Keighley and Ben Grant (Dave and Ben, the D and B of DB fame), explored a Hawkwind to Hilliards sound world by way of Brit Pop Strat riffs. Most of the tunes originals (Funky Tune, Angel, Take the L Train) and none the worse for it, Keighley's enhanced saxophonics (tenor, alto and soprano) reverberated around the upstairs room of the Bridge Hotel. Adrian Sander's hypnotic bass lines freed MacMillan's Strat to scratch and scat, and, occasionally, dazzle, fusion-style. Little Flower (one of few covers) impressed, MacMillan's Puppeteering certainly impressed (Keighley, soprano) and the DB Jazz Project continues to develop.
