Edinburgh Jazz Festival 2017: Brian Kellock Meets the Ear Regulars

The concert I enjoyed most at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival was one I wasn’t reviewing for a newspaper – so, instead of taking notes, I took photos (just on my phone) of the first-ever encounter between top UK pianist Brian Kellock and two of the most regular members of the band that plays weekly at the Ear Inn in New York City – Jon-Erik Kellso (cornet) and Scott Robinson (clarinet & saxophone). They were joined by Dave Blenkhorn (guitar) and Roy Percy (bass). Scroll down beyond the slideshow for the set list …

  1. I heard a version of the EarRegulars at the Ear Inn on a recent trip to New York, and it was a superb, intimate, informal gig. Danny Tobias was standing in for Jon-Eric, but he’s a thoroughly worthy alternative. The band moved with ease from Original Dixieland One-Step to My Ideal. I can well imagine (having heard him on CD with the similar Nova Scotia band) that Brian Kellock will have fit like a glove. And for any lover of mainstream/swing/modern dixieland, etc, visiting New York, I can personally recommend the Ear Inn in Greenwich village every Sunday evening.

    • Dear Bob,
      I’m writing a piece on the 1957 Eddie Condon tour of Britain and would very much like to talk to you, at your convenience. I live in Birmingham, so can easily get over to the Cotswolds. Please let me know if you’re agreeable to this in principle and then we can sort out the details.

      Best wishes
