John Law Trio @ King’s Hall, Newcastle. October 25

John Law (piano & keyboards), Yuri Goloubev (double bass) & Tim Giles (drums)
Pianist John Law returned to the King’s Hall to play a trio concert with bassist Yuri Goloubev and drummer Tim Giles. The lunchtime date drew a sizeable audience to hear the trio present a few numbers from Law’s recent CD release Three Leaps of the Gazelle together with one or two other tunes. The Nick Drake tune River Man opened the one set performance. The King’s Hall’s acoustics did little to help the amplified instrument and at times Goloubev’s excellent bass playing wasn’t heard to best effect. Insistence matched Law’s percussive approach with the inventive Tim Giles (Goloubev’s smile affirmed his appreciation of Giles, the ‘new boy’ of the trio). Law combined jazz and classical piano styles (a concert-goer remarked ‘I heard Bach in his playing’) most notably in Three Part Invention followed by The Quiet Dignity of the Minor. The use of an electric keyboard introduced an unwelcome discordant note. This proved short lived as the trio swung out on Brubeck’s          
In Your Own Sweet Way with Giles to the fore.
