Lindsay Hannon Plus @ Ashington Jazz Club. Wednesday Sept. 5.

Lindsay Hannon (vcl)' Alan Law (pno); John Pope (bs); Mark Robertson (dms).
(Review by Peter S.)
As a regular reader of Bebop Spoken Here  I have not only come to acknowledge the Editor's intimate knowledge of Jazz and Jazz Musicians but over a number of years I have come to respect his views and opinions about the Jazz Scene in the North East. Lance is the founder of an inspirational web site.
I therefore usually agree with his learned comments and found this to be so when AJC welcomed the Lindsay Hannon Plus group at our September meeting. The members experienced a fascinating and varied selection of melodies and lyrics and our musical appetites were well nourished.
With Lindsay as director of the programme, Alan laying down the LAW on keyboard, Robertson MARKing time with great dexterity and POPE, John on bass as if there could be no other musical faith, the performances were outstanding. 
Those of you who are familiar with Lindsay's, repertoire will not  be in need of a programme list but I have attempted to recognize some in the following.
Lindsay "Will never ever need to change now" nor "Walk a little too fast" at the end of a love affair with her audience when the "Bird's in Town" and singing about a sister "When she  was five".For me this was a wonderful performance, a work of art and something of beauty. Lindsay has a good ear for quality lyrics. She and the musicians offer much more and I recommend that you be in the audience when she is in town. She was deserving of a bigger crowd than we in Ashington could provide.

OCTOBER MEETING at the Elephant  will be RUTH LAMBERT AND THE PAUL EDIS TRIO. 8.00 p.m.
See you there.
