Benjamin Moussay Trio @ The Lit & Phil, Newcastle. June 28.

Benjamin Moussay (piano/keyboards), Arnault Cuisinier (double bass) & Eric Echampard (dms).
Tyneside has hosted a succession of French musicians in recent weeks and the latest visitors - the Benjamin Moussay Trio - went down a storm at the Literary & Philosophical Library. Contemporary perhaps yet there was a retrogressive sweep to pianist Moussay's musical palette. The spirit of Satie was evident in his playing, some likened him to Jarrett, we heard a blues and as Moussay turned to the Fender Rhodes it was Bitches Brew period Miles (Corea, Zawinul et al). Arnault Cuisinier's arco bass playing was most effective and drummer Eric Echampard was in his element in the up tempo numbers. CD sales went off the scale - every last one of them sold - and the likeable Moussay was only to happy to sign copies for his many (new) fans. Russell
