Lindsay Hannon Plus at Hexham Jazz Club March 21, 2013.

It was a dark, cold, evening in Hexham, when Lindsay Hannon, John Pope (bass), Mark Robertson (drums) and new addition to the Plus’s, James Harrison (keyboards), arrived. 
With the first few notes of Love Me or Leave Me, the audience was engaged; basking in a state of relaxed delight which was held all evening. Lindsay’s sets were beautifully balanced, varied and full of gems - presenting all the facets of her voice from lyrical to gutsy, but always expressive. 
James and John’s solos were inventive, intriguing and thoroughly musical and Mark’s drums matched each nuance and set the musical moods.
The audience particularly enjoyed the feelings of space in Old Fashioned Hat; the power and passion in Lindsay’s working of a Joshua Redman tune; and the sparkling rendition of Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes. We are delighted and privileged to enjoy a band of such exceptional quality on a wintry Thursday in Hexham.
Hazel Hanley.
