For jazz at its grittiest and most traditional, there is only one place the smoke-filled room at Wally’s. Just about every major combo in town has gotten started there. Sets begin around 9 each night and wail until 2 AM. with no cover charge. The drinks won’t run you out of dough, either. There’s an open blues jam on Monday nights and Sunday afternoons, and an open jazz jam on Thursday nights.

Some historical notes of interest before returning to the travel destination. The 1645 battle symbol was noted earlier on Banton reservoir, the travel destination feeder; that battle was the last of Montrose’s victories in his annus mirabilis. While Montrose was in north-east Scotland, Cromwell had inflicted a crushing defeat on the King’s forces at Naseby, and Montrose realised that however many Covenanting armies he defeated in the north, the result would be marginal. He had to move south. In the middle of August the two opposing forces found themselves face to face at Kilsyth. The Covenanters’ general, Baillie, had the larger force, but was hampered by his serving a committee which included the Earls of Argyll, Elcho, Burleigh and Balcarres, who had all suffered under Montrose’s Highlanders and could not agree on tactics. Montrose was encamped below the Campsies, the Covenanters were on a ridge above. Quite why Montrose had allowed his opponents the higher ground is not known, but the ground between was not suitable for cavalry and Baillie was wary about a possible trap. His committee, however, felt they had caught Montrose at last, and to leave him no chance of escape they began to shift their men across Montrose’s front to occupy a dominant hill from which they would swoop down. In a glen below their route, a small force of MacLeans occupied some houses, and a small body from the Covenanters’ column broke off to attack them, but were repulsed and chased back.
