We have just heard that Pharoah Sanders is, unfortunately, unwell and is unable to travel to Edinburgh for his concert tonight. Of course, Phil Bancroft Quartet is the other half of the double bill, and Phil is a mighty saxophonist too We propose to go ahead with a concert featuring Phil Bancroft Quartet, who will play an extended 75 minute set. For those
Stan Tracey is unavailable due to illness. Many thanks to the leading London based pianist, Steve Melling, who will replace him.
