Zoe Gilby Band at the Side Café

Zoe has a happy knack of picking tunes I like and sometimes even making me like tunes I don't like! In the latter category "Caravan", in the former, "Too Late now".
I've mentioned in a previous post, that "Caravan" has always been one of my blind spots but tonight I have to say that our girl Z moved it up a notch. Helped by Sue Ferris on flute and Mark Williams on guitar and Brown Ale, it swung along merrily.
"Too Late Now" - a tune I've enjoyed since I heard Jane Powell sing it to Peter Lawford in the film "Royal Wedding" - never fails to move me and Zoe's version did the business.
A couple of personnel changes tonight; Sue Ferris, as well as playing nice flute, blew some booting tenor on what looked like a vintage Mark VI, and Richard Brown replaced David Carnegie on drums. Andy Champion, of course, was on bass as usual.
Rounded off my weekend of jazz perfectly.
