Big Jay McNeely, Young Jessie, Chuck Higgins, Willie Egan: Electric Ballroom, London

Penny Reel, New Musical Express, 10 September 1983

I DOUBT WHETHER I am sufficiently qualified to pronounce on the merits or otherwise of the foregoing concert, considering I involve a substantial proportion of this evening competing against a Harlem Globetrotters pinball machine in the adjoining lobby. I can confirm, however, that the music generated provides a perfect backdrop for the competition thereof.

Total word count of piece: 459
