Sunday Service: Adrian Cox & Joe Webb live streaming from Toulouse Lautrec, London - Sept. 27

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals); Joe Webb (piano)

Another Sunday, another Sunday Service. Adrian Cox made a return
visit to Toulouse Lautrec in south London to play a set of tunes focussing on the music of Edmond Hall. Accompanying our clarinetist once again was pianist Joe Webb, the same compatible duo as last week. As always, Cox paused from time to time to acknowledge some of the many comments posted during this afternoon's live stream.

Edmond Hall's Swing Session album formed the basis of today's set. Eleven numbers in little over one hour, Cox and Webb, one half of Cox's regular quartet (Simon Read and Gethin Jones the 'other half'), recalled touring the Profoundly Blue show a couple of years ago (Bebop Spoken Here was in attendance at the band's superb concert at the Watchtower Gallery in Berwick upon Tweed). The boys stuck with the Commodore album's running order, beginning with The Downtown Piano Blues. As ever, this was top quality stuff from the amiable duo. 

CaravanNight and Day (today was the first time Cox had played the number), Show Piece, yes, they were sticking to the LP's the running order. Cox said he often played Sleepy Time Gal with Richard Bennett's band and here he was playing it again in these socially distanced times. The Gershwin's The Man I Love brought us the first of Cox's vocal numbers. A fabulous clarinetist and a singer with a feel for the material, a natural, you might say.

In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town, Rodgers and Hart's Where or When, we could listen to any amount of this stuff but we were heading up to two
o'clock, time for two, maybe three more. To describe Joe Webb as accomplished doesn't tell half the story, a great player is Webb. I Want to Be Happy then another Cox vocal on It Had to be You and to finish, Coquette

It had been yet another excellent Sunday Service. Take a pew next week (Sunday 4 October, 1:00pm) when Cox will be renewing acquaintance with Simon Picton (guitar, banjo) and string bass player Andrea Goldsworthy.
