Folk Meets Jazz @The Globe: September 3 - Good Time Had By All ...

(Review by Ann Alex).
And it was almost Folk Meets Rock, as there was a loud gig going on downstairs from the Jazz Bar, but we were able to continue undeterred, thanks to the sound engineering skills of Barry, Jeff and Minnie.  In fact it demonstrates what a wide selection of music emerges from the Globe.
We had a great evening of music, and a high standard at that, with a bit more folk than jazz this time.  More listeners and performers would be welcome, why not give it a try next time, and find out what you’ve been missing?  
We began with jazz singing from Barry Keatings with Ron Pattinson on piano: Work Song; Stormy Weather; Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out.  These chaps get better every time you hear them. Minnie Fraser and myself harmonised on Bonnie At Morn; then I did a short (yes there is such a thing!) folk ballad followed by a tune from Minnie.  Jeff Smith came along with Salley Gardens on tenor sax and Summertime (NB Lance, not sung) – well done Jeff for playing folk.
Up and coming singer Carrie McCullock gave us Four Drunken Maidens with guitar, and an original song, and Bill cleverly accompanied himself on a tuned bodhran drum for amusing (Irish?) songs about such matters as a woman who wanted to kill her husband. Ian Forbes gave us the funniest song of the evening, the Tom Lehrer song about the mother-in-law who outstayed her welcome, based on Our Love Is Here To Stay.  Michael Woods, ace blues guitarist, brought us country blues from the pens of Blind Blake (real name apparently was Arthur Phelps) and Willie Brown.
Then we did it all again in the second half, different songs of course, except for Nobody Knows You which cropped up again by accident, different person, different interpretation.  We heard Basin Street Blues; Blue Monk on sax, and various folk songs such as Lovesome; John Anderson; He Moved Through The Fair. Then the metro called me home so I left without hearing Michael Woods again, shame!
Next Folk Meets Jazz is Thursday October 1, but there’s lots on at the Globe before then, such as post bop influenced Jazz Machine today (Saturday September 5).  Be there!
