Ruth Lambert w. Stuart Collingwood Trio @ The Cherry Tree.

Ruth Lambert (vcl); Stuart Collingwood (pno); Neil Harland (bs); Paul Smith (dms).
The Trio opened up with I Got Rhythm and I got Confit Chicken and Black Pudding Terrine, Sauce Gribiche. Both offerings were nicely cooked.
Ruth took to the stage Like Someone In Love and soon she was In The Mood For Love (very Julie Londonish) although she finished the love trilogy by posing the question What Is This Thing Called Love? For me the question was answered in the form of a Bavette Steak (medium rare), Garden Leaves, Frites, Garlic Butter.
Ruth herself delved into the songbook for some of the medium rarely performed (by her) numbers such as I Should Care, I Get Along Without You Very Well, Blue Skies and Lush Life. The latter number complemented my Champagne Jelly, Strawberry and Watermelon dessert perfectly.
Our girl was in good voice tonight whilst Stuart, Neil and Paul gave her backing to die for.
The second set had Watch What Happens, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes - this Ruth told us was her mother's favourite - Moonglow, The Way You Look Tonight, a bluesy Willow Weep For Me, One Note Samba and, saving the very best for last, One For My Baby.
If you have yet to visit this fine jazz dinerie then Now's The Time as there is a summer special menu with 20% off! Two courses for £13.60 and three for £15.60 - plus the jazz which next week is Trumpet player Graham Hardy with the Paul Edis Trio.
