Chip Wickham - La Sombra Feat. Matthew Halsall Tickets
Sorry there are no shows for Chip Wickham - La Sombra Feat. Matthew Halsall right now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doof from As experiences go this one will be with me for a long time. Superb. In many respects this is exactly what jazz should be. A narrow sweaty archway roughly under Haggerstown station and a six piece band occupying the smallest area imaginable and a sold out audience of about 350 bearing down on them. Essentially the UK launch for the fabulous La Sombre album Chip Wickham and his band were just so so good in every respect. It was just how you wanting to be, tight, just like listening to the album but with those, base, drum and particularly vibes, sax and flute solo's to bring out the best of each tune. Chip is an incredibly likeable person and for me, his love of the cinematic fits right in with me and takes me back to the styling found in the better 70's blaxploitation films such as Isaac Hayes would create. If all this goodness wasn't enough enter Mathew Halsall who rightly, only wanted to play a bit part as this isn't his lp but he bought a lot to the evening with his beautifully mellow trumpet. Great music and a memorable night
