Zoë Gilby & Mark Williams @ Jazz Café Mezzanine Set 2 - Feb. 19

(Review/photos by Pam Young)

The second set started with another dip into the Aurora Project with Little Dancer by Tom Harrell, followed by an absolutely gorgeous rendition of Monk’s ‘Round Midnight. Zoë's voice and Mark's guitar had me spellbound.

What do you do after that? Well why not You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone by Bob Dylan from the Blood on the Tracks album – fantastic!



We were treated to a lovely ballad Autumn Serenade by Michelle Nicolle then a fun version of You Turned the Tables on me and a marvellous version of I'm Always Drunk in San Francisco - a Nancy Wilson song.  Ah memories!
 
A lovely original composition - Find a Secret - gave us a  fine example of Zoë's song writing talent, and to follow that, the glorious In Walked Bud. Monk's immortal composition ending a great afternoon. The joint surely was jumpin!

It's not difficult to see why Zoë Gilby was awarded Jazz Vocalist of the Year in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2019, her vocal range is amazing just pitch perfect, the choice of material was varied with fresh interpretations of both jazz standards and "contemporary" singer/songriters’ music.

Wonderful songs, beautiful performance by Zoë and the equally awesome Mark Williams.
