Monkey’s Uncle Live
“pure molasses…sweet sounds…too engrossing to think of pigeon-holing genres.”
Ottone Caretta – Sax
Jesse Molins – Guitar
George Cooper – Keys
Al Swainger – Bass
Gary Evans – Drums
Monkey’s Uncle return to CICCIC Taunton on Friday 13th May 7.30pm – 11.00pm (£8/£7) with their programme of all original compositions.
Fran Pitt’s review from our last visit to the CICCIC :
“Al Swainger’s and Jesse Molins’ bass and guitar riffs were like catching up with a long-missed best friend…complex, uninhibited conversations on everything. Both obviously lived every note, Al silently mouthing a scat accompaniment, whilst Jesse’s grimaces looked like chewing wasps. The elegant, rangy figure of Ottone Caretta perfectly matched his lyrical and enticing sax playing, whilst the talented fingers of pianist George Cooper sensitively caressed the keys. Meanwhile Gary Evans’ sticks ‘n skins kept it all together with exceptional versatility, perfectly matching the various moods of the guys’ intricate compositions.
The evening was so toe-tapping, joint-loosening good and the atmosphere so intimate I virtually trickled off my CICCIC-trademark sofa at the end of the evening. One of the best jazz nights ever: I felt privileged to be there. And what a coup for CICCIC!”
