This gig appears to be a testimony to the recuperative powers of John Wetton’s constitution. Having been out partying in the company of David Enthoven and Richard Palmer-James the night before in Munich, he still manages an impressive performance on Doctor Diamond and indeed throughout the rest of the gig. Though the good Doctor would forever elude them in the studio it seems that the band really beginning to find the soul of this song in concert. Fracture has a risky quality tonight; Bruford is in an adventurous mood whilst David’s tron is a touch out of tune.
American keyboardist Kevin Stewart is a superb contemporary jazz instrumentalist and composer who can perform a range of styles - including jazz, blues, and R&B – with equal dexterity, and his new album, Never Look Back, is a good example of his remarkable facility.
