Phil Ogilvie's Rhythm Kings

 

continued

PORK's music is sublime, but this is, after all, a dance band, and each Sunday afternoon the Zal Gaz Grotto once again becomes a dance club, with a lively mixture of generations on the floor. Watching this, I am reminded how fortunate we are to have PORK. There are very few regular bands still playing this music; indeed I can think of only two: Vince Giordano's orchestra in New York and a similar one on the West Coast. Chris Smith likes to say that PORK is the true chance-taking avant-garde in jazz, and he may be right.    (end of article)
