Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Dominic Lodge @ Culture Lab, Newcastle University – October 22

(Review by Russell)
Culture Lab was full to overflowing. Late arriving students stood at the back of the room for this week’s installment of student musicians’ public performance. A short session, as at least one of the performers had to dash down to St Nicholas’ Cathedral for some other engagement in their busy lives. An organ scholar perhaps or choir practice, who knows?
Stevie Jackson sang folk, played fiddle (Norwegian Hardanger) and for one number she was accompanied on guitar by a talented fellow student. Alto sax player Dominic Lodge played a Paul Desmond-Jim Hall blues with piano, bass (the excellent Tim Farrow) and drums (from a distance it looked like Lewis West) and a female vocalist in support. His short set concluded with Duke Pearson’s Sweet Honey Bee.
Finger style guitarist James Wade closed the show with more dazzling playing (earlier in the year Wade gave an impressive recital in Culture Lab). Scott Joplin’s Silver Swan Rag (arr. Tom van Bergeyk), Plymouth House and a John Renbourn tune rounded off a fine set.
