Herts Jazz Club – Mo Foster & Friends “Gil Evans In Miniature”
Mo Foster – Bass, Chris Biscoe – Reeds, Ray Russell – Guitar, Jim Watson – Piano, Nic France – Drums, Corrina Silvester – Percussion
In his 50-year career Mo Foster has had the privilege of touring all over the world with major artists such as Jeff Beck, Phil Collins, Gil Evans, and Van Morrison, whilst in the studios he has performed on over 400 albums with the likes of Gerry Rafferty, Brian May, Gary Moore, and George Martin.
Over the years Mo has worked with many of the finest musicians, but it is not until now that he has been able to bring together his favourite players — his “dream-team” — to play his favourite music. Having performed a string of dates in London, the band is now sounding fantastic and Mo has been recording the gigs with the intention of eventually releasing a live album. “This project is important to me because I want to share and pass on the legacy and love of Gil’s and other great composers’ music to younger audiences and younger musicians.”
