Dom's Saturday Piano Truth - July 4

Dom Pipkin (piano/vocals)

This was "Super Saturday" or so they say. Well, for some of us, it's a super Saturday every week - especially around 9:00pm when Dom Pipkin takes us on a roller coaster piano ride of boogie, blues and barrel-house.

Nobody does it better - well nobody living that is!

New Orleans here we come with Fats Domino's One For the Highway; Yes Sir, That's My Baby; Summertime's Just a State of Mind (good choice); Summertime (bad choice); Let it Roll; Jelly Roll's The Perfect Rag; Sweet Lorraine; Moon River; My Street, Your Street (translation); Headin' South; Professor Longhair's She Walks Right in and Sleep. This latter number seemed a good idea after what had been a busy day at the office.

Dom's back again on Wednesday and next Saturday.

In the meantime, blues lovers can hear some of the great pre-lockdown blues performers from Leeds this evening at 7:00pm.

Let Steve Crocker tell it like it is:
"A final feature on blues performances by singers and instrumentalists who have appeared at Seven Arts, Inkwell and the Chapel Allerton Festival

Sarah Gillespie, Lucy Zirins, Alice Zawadski, Kyla Brox, Colin Hodgkinson, Paul Corry, Big Boy Bloater, Steve Phillips, Al Morrison's Blues Experience and John Taylor and the Blues Dudes. Plus the raffle for some (blue) Wensleydale cheese... Get those 12 golden bars a rollin'...

One final lockdown show is at a slightly later time so that people wanting to check out the live jazz at Seven Arts in the afternoon."
