Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Mark Williams Trio @ The Globe Jazz Bar, Newcastle – Jan 28

Thursday night at the The Globe and a select audience gathered to hear the Mark Williams Trio. The band played two sets of material the style of which went from classic guitar trio to jazz rock fusion a la crème and many things in-between. All the tunes played were original compositions although they had a familiar feel to them which enabled the audience to hook into the swing of things comfortably.  
The three musicians played with considerable aplomb Williams and Susans showing great command of their electric instruments backed by sympathetic drumming from Morgan. In my opinion I thought Morgan could have been more forceful and driven things with a little more dynamism but I seemed to be in a minority of one because everyone else I spoke to really appreciated his subtle approach.  A highly entertaining evening much enjoyed by the entire audience.
Steve,
