Chris Conway
Captured during his guest appearance with the Freestyle Collective at the fashionable Original 4 Bar in Leicester -a hot night of CC on top form with a kicking band singing 6 of his songs and 2 great covers including eccentric theremin appearances...

Each month the Freestyle Collective invite a guest performer to front their session. Once chosen they have 1 night's rehearsal and the session is 3 days after that. ~

The band did an amazing job soaking up 6 Conway originals and his 2 chosen covers - the Pharoah Sanders/Leon Thomas classic The Creator...., and Teddy Randazzo's Latin song he wrote for Little Anthony & The Imperials. It was a hot steaming night and the music reflected that.

As well as capturing several of CCs rare songs live, the recording captured an electric night at the O4 that regulars were talking about for some time. The theremin was especially noted. CC threw himself into this session and it shows.
