CD Review/Gig Preview: Damian Cook & Sam Dunn - Indian Summer.

Damian Cook (ten/clt); Sam Dunn (gtr).
(Review/preview by Lance)
Damian Cook will be remembered as the reedman from the pit band at the Theatre Royal who, during last Christmas' panto season, dropped by the Jazz Café jam sessions as well as blowing up a storm for the Jazz Coop at the Globe.
The good news is that Christmas has come early this year, not only with the release of a beautifully executed duo album with 7 string guitarist Dunn but also a live session scheduled for the Globe on August 22.
Taking the album first, a choice selection of standards displaying the talents of these two "Four beats to the bar and no cheating" - as Bill Basie once said when asked to describe Swing - artists. There is a distinct manouche feel to the tracks with Cook on clarinet whilst the more boisterous tenor numbers also have a Frenchness about them bringing to mind Guy Lafitte or Alix Combelle.
Listen here and bag it for a mere £7!
And if you like it - if! (silly question) for £2 less you can have the whole experience live at the Globe on Saturday August 22.
