Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25, No. 7. 1962.


Artistically lit and charmingly compered by 2ZB's Bas Tubert, the Jazz Club's concert was best summed up by the adjective "tasteful."

The ensembles were well-rehearsed and there was little rambling, but one began to wish for some of the old bumptiousness that characterised the earlier concerts. The opening quintet presented some familiar faces. Gary Gervin blew a refined alto and Dave Fraser supported well, but it was up to Geoff Murphy, in spite of his technical limitations, to rouse the soloing out of a rut with some thoughtful trumpet.

Tommy Tamati was a humorous and strongly rhythmic bassist, and showed some playful inventiveness in his work with the Dave Fraser trio. Dave Lawrence rather unfortunately fell away from the beat several times, but helped to pull the soloing together quite ably.
