Calgary jazz/ rock/ pop band l’omelette returned to the Slice, Saturday, April 30 to add some sexy sax juice to a set of  well worn covers.

 I only caught the last set of the Calgary band featuring Howlin’ Pete Cormier  And Meg “Megs Benedict” Thompson of peter and the Wolves and their new band, showing a different side to their multi-faceted musical  jewelry box.

 Thos time the band was dressed in jungle print tights except Meg in a glittering black pants and jacket which she eventually got rid of.


Heart, interesting sax powered arrangements of classic rock and pop and originals of everything from classic Heart’s “Magic Man’ to Amy Winehouse’s “Cherry Wine.” to jazzing up Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs.”

Everything songs better slathered in saxophone, so Thompson was pleased to drench this  musical smorgasbord with plenty of  it.


 When she wasn’t showing her powerful pipes from belting out blues classics like “ I Just Want to Make Love to you,” she was crooning out contemporary pop hits.


 Thompson and Cormier did a quick duet with Cormier on acoustic  for an audience birthday request. Overall the show was an evening of decades spanning psychedelic  experimental saxophone powered music.

 No Doubt’s “spiderwebs” was a highlight near the end as was “ I Just Want to make Love to You.”
