ELC @ Ray's Jazz Stage

(Not quite) easy listening


Chris Biscoe's Easy Listening Collective is quite far from what its' name suggests. Armed with alto sax and at least a couple of clarinets, double bass and drums, the quartet was pretty out there for a cold late afternoon at Foyle's Cafe, Charing Cross - and we thank them for that!
Guillaume Viltard delivered some pretty impressive playing on his bass, giving with the less loud of the four instruments the "loudest" performance.
There's no denying the foursome's expertise in both cool jazz standards and quirky experiments - a pretty good deal for the price of a coffee and a cake on the bookshop's cosy first floor.
P.S. If you bump into them again, by the way, they've just changed their name to Happenstance.
