P. Rool Once upon a time there was a young man named Bob Thompson who came-down from New York to attend West Virginia State College. He liked the area, found a woman he loved and married, and settled here, forming a band called the Bob Thompson Trio. It was a jazz-like, little combo that played in the area and recorded an album that is no longer available, unless you can talk Thompson out of one. The Bob Thompson Trio added a bass player and then they were four. Then Thompson left, spending a year in St. Louis and the band was the Jim Martin Trio. (It featured a pianist named Bobbie Cole who can now be heard at the Captain's Lounge.) Then Thompson returned, and they couldn't call it the Bob Thompson'Trio "(or Quartet) or .the Jim Martin Trio (or Quartet), so they thought up a new name, Collage. ; This, excellent little .band^ is now house band at the Top .of the Inn here in Charleston, and no matter who the featured performer may be, these musicians make .the show. ; When singer Terri Baker appeared at the club recently, she praised the high musical standard of the band. "With musicians like that behind you," she said, "you don't have to worry. I'.ve played a lot of dates with lots of bands, and these guys are among the best." Collage consists of Thomp- son on piano and organ, Martin on bass, Vince Lewis (who also teaches at Morris H a r v e y ) on guitar, and Frank Thompson on drums. They've been together in one form or another for about six years. There are a couple of unusual aspects to the Collage performance. One is the. strange looking drum set used by Frank Thompson. It is a Trixon set and the bass drum has a flat bottom. Bob Thompson says the German company produced drums in several styles a few years back, but none caught on. The main advantage to this drum, he says, is that there's room enough for two bass drum pedals on one head, making two basses unnecessary. Of course, purchasing a new head poses problems. Another unusual aspect is the high quality of the music produced by the band and the seeming lack of approval from Top of the Inn audiences. · "I guess part of that's our fault," Thompson says. "Most of the time, like during the week, we play to bus- iessmen, who come here to kinda unwind, and we just play the music and don't say too much. We don't communicate with them, so they don't react." The band does a dance set before the featured entertainer's first set and another before the final show. Does it bother him when there's no applause? "All the time," he responded- "A lot of 'em sit there and they think, 'I ought to applaud,' I mean, they've Question Box told me that, but nobody else does, and they don't want to be alone in it, I guess." Thompson characterizes the band's music as "the same kind of stuff we were doing two years ago, popular tunes with a little different style arrangement. It's not the record, but you recogr nize it, you know'what I meap? It works." ' ' Work, it does. i The band's set recently has included such tunes as "We've Only Just Begun," "Stormy," "Natural Man," "The Way We Were," "Joy to the World," "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." Generally the arrangements are Thompson's or band co-ops. They are uniformly fine. Anyone who has the opportunity to see this band ought to. · Ray Brack, who used to work for the Gazette^ahd now is editor and publisher of West Side Weekly (at least he was last time I looked) is promoting some-,, thing called Continuous Concert at the Jamboree Hall, 305 W. Washington St. ;; Brack's concerts feature some fine local rockjiaiids; all professional musicians playing for union scale or better. . Jf -The season opened^ine 21, Tvith bands DelaYa\ahd Mammoth. Last Friday's show featured Smoke Hole Canyon Band and Sunrise. Tickets run about $2 each, which" certainly is reasonable.
