Trumpet legend Gregg Stafford returned to Toronto for his eleventh annual concert on Sunday December 02, 2018. Held for the second straight year at the Lula Lounge supper club, a devoted and enthusiastic audience enjoyed a master at work.
Backing Gregg were:
Roberta Hunt/host/piano Toby Hughes/alto Tom Richards/trombone Jack King/banjo Chuck Clark/drums Chris Daniels/bass
Produced, as ever, by Mary Simpson, it was a fine evening. The splendid music from the stage was complemented by several snaking second lines and excellent service from the Lula Lounge staff. Thanks to the sound engineer, the cavernous room never sounded as such, with all instruments balanced and clearly audible. At $25 it was a snap to be taken to the French Quarter for the evening. Thanks again, Mary and Gregg.
