Jammin' @ The Jazz Café

The Jazz Café Jam continues with its cast of 1000's strolling in and out. Today there were some precious moments. Claire Kelly singing 'Round Midnight was so emotive you could have heard a pin drop - or Keith's colourful comments on the world or whatever! Claire's duet with Mark Williams on guitar on I've Grown Accustomed to his Face was also pretty grabbing. The line His highs, his lows, his ups, his downs are second nature to me now came across perfectly - it is one of the great lyrics and the girl did it proud ably abetted by Mark whose accompaniment was both sympathetic and inspirational. Earlier she'd opened the vocal batting with I've got The World On a String and later did Whisper Not. On the instrumental front Solar impressed with Pete Gilligan, Paul Grainger, Mark Williams and Ian Forbes getting a nice easy groove going. Claire was back in the saddle for Song For My Father and with, true grit, she overcame the augmented support.
As afternoon segued into evening the audience increased and before long the usual suspects were waiting to join the line-up. I left to the sounds of Harlem Nocturne - it wasn't the best HN I'd ever heard but compared to what was to follow it was PDG!
Lance.
