Jack Hamilton @ La Bodega, Morpeth.

We had a quick visit to La Bodega Bar/Restaurant in Morpeth last night. Some folks may remember it as the Black and Grey pub. All we knew was that Jack Hamilton is the house pianist there every Thursday night. I had spoken on the phone to the owner, a lady called April.
As we arrived Jack was accompanying April who was singing a couple of numbers from the great American songbook. including My Funny Valentine. I look forward to hearing her sing again. She was fantastic, with great arrangements from Jack. He also did a wonderful job of my request, my favourite The Shadow of Your Smile.As a matter or interest April is looking to book jazz orientated bands.
