Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

RUTHLESS @ The HIGHFIELD HOTEL. ZOE GILBY TRIO.

Zoe Gilby (vcl), Paul Edis (pno), Andy Champion (bs).
Ruth Lambert, like the majority of last week's crowd, phoned in sick. However, Zoe Gilby was at hand to step into Ruth's stilettos so all was not lost - although a few more posteriors in pews would have added some ambiance to the proceedings.
It was a good performance under difficult circumstances and our girl, like the trouper that she is, sang in her inimitable, recognisable, style.
Loved her version of "Straight No Chaser" and "Lullaby of Birdland" as well as "Time After Time" and who would have bet on "I Thought About You" turning up two gigs running? (Simon Spillett was the other one.)
Paul and Andy also excelled - have they ever done a gig when they didn't I wonder?
Shame that the support hasn't been sufficient to maintain a weekly jazz gig. Next one is rumoured to be 'sometime next month'.
Lance.
