Zoe Gilby Sextet at Blaydon Jazz Club

Zoe simply gets better each time around and, with her normal five piece augmented by Paul Edis on piano, tonight was rather special. A few new, at least to me, numbers tonight including a "Lullaby of Birdland" taken rather faster than the norm that almost didn't come off but did and likewise, "You Turned The Tables On Me" which also had some vocal brinkmanship.
A big blast on "Night in Tunisia" contrasted with tender readings of "Round Midnight", "Angel Eyes", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "Darn That Dream" done with a Latin feel.
Zoe's men, Noel Dennis (tpt), Mark Williams (gtr), Andy Champion (bs), Paul Edis (pno) and of course David Carnegie (dms), were all on top of their game and the feelgood atmosphere was personified when a couple tripped the light fantastic during the final "Just Squeeze Me."

sounds like my sort of vocalist Lance, will you tip me off if she ever gigs anywhere near to us in York?

Will do, Liz. You can access her My Space site by clicking on the link "Zoe's Place" in the right hand column.
There are various "away" gigs coming up such as Wakefield, London, Suffolk so who knows but that one day York will figure on the list.
