FRIDAY 23 Glasgow
I Terry Lightloot and His Band Mitchell Theatre. Granville Street. 227 5511. 8pm. £10. The theatre‘s short jazz season continues with the veteran British trad clarinetist and saxophonist, but the prices seem a bit steep for a player who is notof the first rank. even in British terms.
I Macao Parker and Roots Revisited Queen‘s Hall. Clerk Street, 6682019. 8.30pm. £7.50—£9.50; concessions £4 on door if available. The ex-J . B . ‘s alto man teams up with his former cohorts Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley in a funky, hard-drivin1,soul-jazz outfit.

I John Barnes and Jack Finlay Trio Jazz At The Tron. Tron Cellar Bar, 9Huntcr Square, High Street.2201550. 9pm—midnight (doors 8.30pm). £4 (£3.50). This new club is settling in nicely, despite being on the small side. and I hope it will also be on the crowded side forthis visit by one of the best mainstream saxophonists on the British scene. A fixture in Humphrey Lyttelton‘s band for donkey‘s years. Barnes can be a caustic performer as well as a mellow one, and should bring out the best in the Jack Finlay Trio.
