Redemption @ Bridge Hotel (Splinter). June 28.

John Hall (ten); Jim Hall (pno); Keith Tulip (6 string bs gtr); Martin Wake (dms).
(Review by Lance/photo courtesy of Ken Drew).
This review may not be totally unbiased! I mean when a band writes a tune dedicated to yours truly, what am I going to do - slag them off? Freelance (or is it Free Lance?) was indeed written with me in mind. A very humbling experience and I've got plenty to be humble about!
Thank you guys.
Personal issues aside, this was a powerful session by a band that is continually progressing, programming a mix of originals, interspersed with a few standards (Manteca, Spain and La Fiesta), that provided the audience with two well balanced sets of Latin, jazz rock and a smattering of banter between tunes.
Redemption are a surprisingly insular band inasmuch as I've never seen any of the musicians crop up in other bands unlike many players who seem to be involved with half a dozen different bands. Perhaps Redemption earn their corn playing non jazz gigs. More power to their elbow if it enables them to give a laid back performance such as they did tonight,
Catch them if and when you can.
Lance.

I can say for sure that jazz isn't all that these people do! Keith (my uncle, no less) also plays a lot of country/blues. I think I got that right. Either way, I can honestly say in the least biased way that this band deserves a lot more exposure. I thought their sets were marvellous and watching them would be a great experience for many of my alumnus/almuna friends.
