The large room with dance floor and star-lights-lit ceiling is the perfect setting for getting one in the mood listening to numbers by guitarist
Love for Sale Wes Montgomery, the 1964 Song for my Father by Horace Silver, Cantaloupe Island by Herbie Hancock, both famous pianists heard here given lovely toned prominence by newcomer Pat on trombone, the passionate voice of Laura-Beth on
Peggy Lee’s Fever were highlights of the evening.
First formed in 2005, “Four on Six” in 2007 added trombonist Pat Strachan to the line-up. Having taught brass instruments in the schools of Inverness and Nairn, and having heard the group for the first time, doubtless, the bone has been a welcomed changed sound to the band.
The Waterside Hotel Restaurant is now a venue for past students, those a bit older, not forgetting jazz fans in general to attend.
Their next “Four on Six” Jazzband gig at the Waterside telephone: 01463 233065 is on Wednesday the 16th of May following every two weeks.
