Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Milestones Jazz Club - The steady beacon which shines for jazz in Lowestoft, first Sunday evening of each month, at The Hotel Hatfield

(I'm grateful to Hil for forwarding me this review of Zoe's recent Lowestoft gig.
Lance.)
I said, “There is, in this writer’s opinion, a great gig coming up that should not be missed.”
Well, it is gratifying to occasionally be proved correct. Zoe Gilby, supported by Andy Champion (bass), Simon Browne (piano) and Brian McAlister (drums), managed with ease to entice out a large number of local jazz fans on a cold ‘most easterly’ night, and this included our contingent of SJF representatives.
All of the first set was taken by Zoe showcasing a selection of her fine repertoire, often very much as a front line jazz instrument, backed up with just Andy Champion on double bass. Not easy to do I imagine, but this lady made it look effortless.
During the second set Zoe was backed by the trio in more conventional style. If you are sorry to have missed this great evening, then watch for further appearances and try to include her in your diary of ‘must have’ dates - we believe you will not be disappointed.
You can hear and learn more via this link - Zoe Gilby.
The next gig at Milestones is on Sun 7th March 2010 when the feature will be the ever popular Jim Mullen Organ Trio.
