The Filip Verneert and Enrique Simon Quartet @ the Eyemouth Hippodrome - April 10.

(Review by Kay C/Photos ©gillesmoulinphotography.com)
What a stroke of luck for the Eyemouth Hippodrome audience that Belgian Filip Verneert (guitar/composer), Spaniard Enrique Simon (piano/composer), French Gil Lachenal (bass) and Belgian Frederik Van den Berghe (drums) chose to begin their first Scottish tour just north of the border.
Filip and Enrique have been performing as a duo for four years and more recently as a quartet with Gil and Frederik. Their sometimes light-hearted, sometimes deeply moving explanations of the inspirations behind their compositions enriched an engaging, melodic and often surprising journey of jazz through Spain, Belgium, France, Italy, America, Japan and the Eden of Garden with each piece clearly evoking the sentiment and varied atmospheres that inspired them.
Enrique’s Another Night, of composing by candlelight through the wee small hours, Filip’s October, inspired by his admiration for James Taylor and Another Wednesday, of the long-standing weekly jam sessions in Ghent. Finely crafted compositions began and returned to sections played with an accuracy and precision that belied their complexity, and always included the space to allow the incredible talent of each musician to delight their audience. A clear purpose of pianist, guitarist, bassist and drummer was to inspire and be inspired and to give and take in equal measure. The warmth, generosity and talent of each of these remarkably gifted musicians, both towards each other and their audience made this a captivating and exciting concert.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
