Zoe Gilby Quartet @ Ashington Jazz Club Feb 2.

Zoe Gilby (vcl), Mark Williams (gtr), Andy Champion (bs), Richard Brown (dms).
Zoe Gilby returned to Ashington for her second visit supported by an excellent trio - and what a superb combination they were.
It was no surprise to recognize the advancement and progression of Zoe's vocal talents since her previous appearance and the increasing range in her art. She and the trio performed standards and originals from her most recent C.D. all introduced with interesting information about the writers.
The most interesting feature I found of the presentation was that Zoe has acquired a very personal style. This gives her audience a unique image and fresh interpretation of well known songs and another way of enjoying these standards in a Jazz situation.
The majestic Trio supplied a variety of moods and rhythms giving each an opportunity to express themselves and their talents.
Obviously, singer and instruments were in complete harmony.
Zoe was at times moody, gentle, dramatic, bluesy, energetic, all styles you would expect from a young artiste but always individual.
Great.
Her audience listened respectfully and applauded enthusiastically. It is fair to say that during the evening Ashington Jazz Club allowed "Bebop Spoken Here"!
Programme:- No More Blues, I'm Beginning to See the Light/When Lights are Low, A Song For You, Take it Easy But Take It, Caravan , May I Come In?, Eleanor, Some Cats Know, Mummy, Just Squeeze me, Midnight Bell, Time After Time, I Only Have Eyes for You, That Old Black Magic.
I recommend to you the inimitable Zoe Gilby.
