Splinter Jam Session - Bridge Hotel

Alan Law (pno); John Pope (bs); Jonathan Marriott (dms) + Zoe Gilby, Lindsay Hannon, Kathryn Lowdon (vcl); Andy Champion (bs); Jeff Armstrong (dms),
(Review by Lance).
The trio set the ball rolling with Alone Together and There is no Greater Love (is there a greater standard that conveys the love between two people?) Zoe gave us Wave and a new piece in her bass/vcl repertoire - Nick Cave's Red Right Hand. Very dark.. Zoe did some of her individualistic vocalesing on the old bebop anthem Now's The Time before the trio said That's All.

It wasn't quite "That's All", Ms Lowdon (pictured) was Moanin' and nobody complained even though her next number was an original - Bit Off More Than I Can Chew. Jeff Armstrong took over on drums and Lindsay the mic for excellent renditions of Speak Low and Don't Explain and the trio played My Favourite Things and There Will Never be Another You. All guys were on the ball.  Good audience, shortage of jammers - possibly all at Darlo.
