Katherine Stone Quartet @ The Cherry Tree. December 3.

Katherine Stone (vcl) Dean Stockdale (pno) Steve Doyle (drums) Dion Krishnan (bgtr)
(Review by John T.)
This must be the third visit of the Katherine Stone Quartet to this venue. I'm beginning to become a bit of a groupie for my favourite trio and singer. This was also the third time I'd heard them play.  Man of the match once again on bass guitar was dep. Dion  Krishna - in for regular bass player Mick Danby who I assume is still suffering from his shoulder injury. I noticed that Dean and Katherine both use ipads for their music – very impressive and efficient!!
 The band introduced some new numbers including Santa Baby ( Don’t forget to come up to Ashington Jazz Club on Wednesday to hear Caroline Irwin’s version of Santa Baby and vote for the best Santa in Lance's competition) (Eh? - Lance)
Two great sets at the Cherry Tree, each number perfectly polished including:-
Sway, Cheek to Cheek, My Heart Belongs to Daddy, Night and Day, I Wish You Love, Misty, Wade in the Water Hit the Road to Dreamland, The Way You Look Tonight, Falling in Love Again, Ain't Misbehavin', That Od Black Magic, Besame Mucho, Spooky, Dindi, Route 66, S’Wonderful, Squeeze Me, Sunny, I Get a Kick Out of You, You Are So Beautiful, Love me or Leave me, Agua de Beba, I Wish I Knew (TV Film theme)
Magnificent food and service - considering the place was full. Even the function room was brimming! Everyone went home full of Christmas spirit  (and a magnificent brandy sauce as well!) Thanks to Peter and all the staff for a great night out. We stayed until the end - as did the other diners who are also addicted to Katherine’s wonderful style and presence
