Bebop Spoken There

Splinter @ The Seaside - The Trojan Rooms, Whitley Bay. July 3rd - Part 2: Ruth Lambert Quintet

Ruth Lambert (vocals), Graeme Wilson (tenor saxophone), Paul Edis (piano), Andy Champion (double bass) & Tim Johnston (drums) On this beautiful summer's evening there was no moon at all and Ms.Ruth Lambert reiterated the fact by singing the Redd Evans/David Mann classic No Moon At All accompanied by the superb tenor saxophone of Graeme Wilson. It was good to hear I'm Glad There is You from Lambert's first CD So Many Stars with Paul Edis' sensitive piano playing to the fore.
We know Lambert as a consummate interpreter of of the GAS book but, for a moment, she closed the book and turned to one of the great singer songwriters of this or any generation - Bonnie Raitt. The American's Love Me Like a Man was given the treatment - Lambert can certainly sing a blues. It would be good to hear one or two blues numbers in the set next time she's out and about.
A particular highlight was Beautiful Love with wonderful phrasing of the lyric and the boys in the band (including a moonlighting Andy Champion) had some fun with Juan Tizol's Caravan. A cracking set from a class act.
Russell.
