What a sensational night! Brilliant performance from Pat, Joe Dyson and Chris Fishman. A brilliant selection of songs, outstanding dynamics and details, and solos that took you on a magical journey. Great intensity and commitment to the music. Wonderful. A lot to take in. Thanks to Pat and the trio.

Bookmark and Share jeansteinmann: Thank you for your post as I was worried when I heard James Francies was replaced. After a Google search of Chris Fishman combined with Pat’s fine-tuned radar for finding exceptional young musicians I wasn’t worried. In fact now I wish I could see that Side-Eye trio. I have heard Joe Dyson for years with Donald Harrison Jr. and in 2020 with Donny McCaslin. He has developed into an excellent drummer. Very glad you enjoyed the show. yossarian: I think I know what the "secret weapon" was and it is a WML (Weapon of Mass Layers".

Bookmark and Share I agree. Brilliant performance by Pat and his young band. I was slightly worried before that James Francies from the previous line up would be missed, but Chris Fishman was excellent as was Joe Dyson. 44 years on from when I first saw Pat in London he’s still in a class of his own.

Bookmark and Share Still buzzing from it. OK, going bassless meant kind of stripped back versions but the tunes were cleverly picked so we lacked for nothing and of course when a few more layers were needed, a secret weapon materialised...

Bookmark and Share Sounds like a great gig. Five encores. And a reviewer noted there was ’a significant younger element in the audience.’ London has such a vibrant and eclectic 21st century jazz scene.
