The Chosen Five
Jeremy Huggett – reeds
Gethin Liddington – trumpet/flugelhorn
Richard West – piano
Federico Leonori – bass
Eddie John – drums
An entertaining evening with this band was what we expected and what we got. A mixed repertoire played by five excellent musicians and we heard a real mixture of styles and tunes. Jeremy & Gethin front the band and go so well together and their rhythm section are solid. Richard’s fingers are like lightening across the keyboard and Federico’s bass playing is second to none and driven along by Eddie’s sensational drumming.
We had some fun when Jeremy announced he was playing three sets until 11 o’clock – I was happy to go along with that – but phones are a great aid especially when they are in a musicians pocket. With Maria’s help we got the message down to the stage to let them know it was two sets and a 10.30pm finish.
Thanks guys for a great evening.
