Led Bib. London, February 2013.

When I was in London last month, I went back to one of my old haunts, the Vortex jazz club in Dalston. I had noticed a tweet from a band I like that they were playing whilst I was in town, booked a ticket, and here I was. Well, after an excellent meal and three bottles of wine with friends. (That was about a bottle of wine each of those drinking. I would notice that the next morning.)

Led Bib are an interesting band. Part of the modern British jazz movement – stable-mates with Polar Bear (and occasional band mates, too) – they have two alto saxes in the front line. Their music is kind of danceable improvised-jazz-funk-dub – with a nod across to Ornette Coleman. I guess that’s to be expected with two altos.

It was a great gig.
