It's warm inside
It was deadly cold outside so I didn't expect too many at Old Canberra Inn at Wayne Kelly's monthly jam session. The news that it's warm inside must have spread because it was busy as when I left, and I had to leave early for a double billing at the Gods. This trio is such a pleasure to hear as itself, but there are regular sit-ins as well as the full jam session experience. I was early and got to play with Wayne and Mark and later Ross and other. But it was noisy and busy as I left, Dave Lole was up, and over the night there were plenty of FB messages including one saying Sydney drummer Nick McBride sat in. Seems like a scene is developing here. Totally worthy: these guys are both great players and welcoming hosts.
Wayne Kelly Trio are Wayne Kelly (piano), Ben O'Loghlin (bass) and Mark Sutton (drums). They perform each Tuesday 6.30-8.30pm at Old Canberra Inn; free entry; food and drinks on tap. First Tuesday each month is jam session. Tonight's jammers included Ross Buchanan (piano), David Lole (piano) and Nick McBride (drums).
