Laurie Shepherd/Nick Pride - Quadrata Café by John Taylor

Took two hours to get by bus from Ashington to Newcastle today only to find that the decorators were in at Central Square. The walls were covered in scaffolding and it seemed to improve the acoustics. Numbers were down - there wasn't room for any more because of the scaffolding!
Young Laurie Shepherd sang several jazz standards as well as numbers made popular by Amy Winehouse, Sade and others on the fringe of the jazz scene. Nick Pride was the ideal accompanist for Laurie giving a jazz interpretation to a very varied programme.
