4. The Blues We Played Last Night
5. Blues For Sunday
6. Polka Dots And Moonbeams
7. Tenderly

This CD contains seven selections performed at the Students Union Hall at Bristol University by three separate British jazz groups. At times sounding close to Stan Getz tonewise, tenor saxophonist Tubby Hayes has two lengthy numbers while joined by trumpeter Les Condon, pianist Mike Pyne, bassist Ron Matthewson and drummer Tony Levin. In contrast, tenorman Tony Coe (who is featured on three songs, including a version of "Tenderly" not released until this 1993 CD) often recalls Paul Gonsalves, particularly on "The Jeep Is Jumpin'." He is joined by trombonist John Picard, pianist Collin Purbrook, bassist Peter Ind and drummer Jackie Dougan. In addition, there are two numbers (a blues and "Polka Dots and Moonbeams") performed by guitarist Frank Evans in a trio with Ind and Dougan. Overall, Coe takes solo honors during the concert, and it is unfortunate that he does not get to team up with Hayes. ~ Scott Yanow
