Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Mo Scott w. Stuart Collingwood Trio @ The Cherry Tree.

Mo Scott (vcl); Stuart Collingwood (pno); Neil Harland (bs); Paul Smith (dms).
A good crowd showed their appreciation of the trio's version of C Jam Blues. a good indication that tonight was one of the hipper audiences!
Mo decided she was Taking A Chance On Love whilst I elected to take a chance on Salmon Fishcakes, Tartare Sauce and Garden Leaves.
We both picked a winner!
Mo effortlessly tailored the melody and the lyric to suit her interpretation of the Vernon Duke tune and I found my tastebuds marvelling at what can be done with a fishcake in the hands of an expert!
Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby? is a question Mo frequently poses. Embraceable You, a divine piece of Gershwinery sung soulfully and with feeling.
Bye Bye Blackbird - or in my case - bye bye Bavette Steak, Marmite Butter, Fries (a mountain of them!) and more Garden Leaves.
The standards flowed effortlessly as did my bottle of Black Sheep Bitter and by intermission time, as Mo wailed the blues, a couple danced causing the waitresses too to display some nimble footwork to avoid dousing the diners with a bowl of Roast Tomato and Pepper Soup!
I didn't stay to the (Black Sheep?) Bitter end despite Mo and the band swinging like crazy - yesterday's Jazzathon was taking its toll so, after my Honey and Vanilla Semifreddo, Toffee Apple and Toasted Pine Nuts which perfectly matched the Trio's version of All The Things You Are, I opted for an early night.
Lance.
