Preston, Glasgow, Lowe

    This trio played at Matt and Phred's on Wednesday night. The three young musicians are very talented - virtuosi in fact. The line up is guitar, bass and drums which might sound fairly banal, but each player was able to play very impressive solos which had the audience enthralled.
 
 I was particularly impressed with Kevin Glasgow, whose six string bass produced solos which any guitarist would have been proud of. David Preston's astounding guitar was also a real treat to hear, with some great altered  chord arrangements and a good range of different tones and colours. Laurie Lowe was quite simply one of the best drummers I have heard in a long time. All three have played with many big names already and they are still in their twenties. They play their own music.

  A CD will be out after this tour. If you like the music of Allan Holdsworth, this band will not disappoint.
