Zoë Gilby Band

Another fine session from Zoë who gave her usual polished performance. 'When Lights Are Low' may have been being 'premiered' but it didn't detract from her rendition and I look forward to it becoming a staple part of her repertoire. 'I'm Beginning to See the Light' and 'Angel Eyes' were two other numbers that hit the spot as indeed did the rest of her program. Noel Dennis (tpt/Flug), Mark Williams (gtr), and Andy Champion (bs) were also on form whilst on drums David Carnegie was his usual solid self. Pleased to see her dad in the audience - he must be very proud.

Indeed another great night from Zoë, whose interpretation of songs comes up fresh each time I hear her.
I know that there is talk of a national tour for her, as there is for David Carnegie's superb quintet Extreme Measures. With Indo-Jazz quartet Free Spirits winning a Promoters' Choice award last year (which also gets them a national tour), and Andy Champion's electronic duo Chikon having recently played a gig in London, the North East jazz scene is really starting to make its mark outside the region.
And there's hardly a week goes by without another exciting young band emerging. As Wordsworth wrote about the French Revolution: "Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive". Spot on, William.

It's good to see so many young bands and singers emerging both locally and nationally.
