26/07/2004 ‘Summer Nights’ at Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street

One of two gigs during the Summer at the Art Gallery; early on sunny Thursday evenings. Med-style jazz and soundtracky electronica filtering up through the building from the atrium. It seemed to work well, the sound of Horace Silver and tracks from the first Aim LP; a strange twist to the experience of gazing at all those pre-Raphaelite paintings on the upper floors. I was hoping Sappho would come alive and join us on the dancefloor, but that never happened….
