Peanuts Hucko, Glasgow Society ot Musicians, Saturday 19.
The vacuum created by the demise of Plattorm is soon to be tilled by a new organisation to promote jazz in Scotland. It will concentrate on supporting local musicians, organising venues and creating a solid base tor the music. Funding is by the Scottish Arts Council and itwill be based in Glasgow.
For the moment, Glasgow gets a visit lrom a star of the mammoth Edinburgh Jazz Festival. 70-year-old American clarinettist extraordinaire Peanuts Hucko is back in Scotland with singer
Louise Tobin, and they play Glasgow with a line local quartet of Tom Finlay on piano; Jimmy Feighan, vibes; Ricky Steele, bass; and Murray Smith on drums.
With Glenn Miller and later Benny Goodman — where he played the tenor sax— Hucko reverted back to clarinet when he joined Armstrong's All Stars. He has worked continually since then, and is now a regular visitor to Europe. A show tor those who love jazz in the mainstream, and anyone who wants to hear one of the most technically advanced players.
