I think it was Jazz Times. I never went to a Gavin convention.

If we are talking about the same night, I have often told the story of 
being in that club and Bheki started his set playing tenor off stage. He 
eventually came on stage, playing tenor. He moved to the piano while 
still playing tenor but he began to play chords and other embellishments 
on the piano while he was playing the tenor. It was a memorable set.
