SUNDAY 26 -
I Jim Galloway and The Sandy Taylor Trio Society of Musicians. 73 Berkeley Street. 221 6112. 8pm. £7 (£4). The Canadian-based saxophonist is back in his native Scotland to celebrate his mother’s birthday. and the folk at the Society have not been slow to capitalise on that situation by slipping in this gig. Galloway is always well worth hearing. but it is ironic that. entirely by chance. he should be playing on the same night as another distinguished Scottish expatriate. Joe Tetnperley. has a gig in Edinburgh. 1 for one would love to hear them both — as it happens. 1 can‘t get to either. Who said September was a quiet month forjazz?

Edinburgh ; I Russell Cowieson Gulntet Jazz Cellar. * Tron Tavern and Ceilidh House. Hunter Square. 220 1550. 9pm. £3 (£2). Saxophonist Russell Cowieson is showing every sign of conﬁrming the promise he revealed as a member of the Strathclyde Youth Jazz Orchestra. He has a big. warm. Ben Webster-like tone which is unusual among his contemporaries. reared as they are on the more acerbic Coltrane-derived sonorities. and plenty to say with it.
I Soundbites Usher Hall. Lothian Road. 228 1155. 7.30pm. £7.50—£9. This is essentially a classical programme (see Classical listings for details). but Evelyn Glennie‘s guests include jazz pianist Julian Joseph, who recently got over that ‘difﬁcult second album‘ phase with the release of Reality (East West). If you can’t make it. or the rest of the programme doesn‘t appeal. catch it on the telly in due course.
