Jas Kayser at the Vortex - May 11

(Screenshot by Russell)
Jas Kayser (drums); Joe Webb (piano); Will Sach (double bass) 

A set of standards given an amazing full-on improvised workout. Three young, exceptionally talented musicians digging into the material, the opening numbers drawn from Ellington and the sixties' modern jazz canon - Money JungleComes Love and Joshua. Oscar, Erroll, the stride masters, a contemporary sensibility, pianist Joe Webb has got it all. Regular bass partner, NYC's Will Sach swung it like there was no tomorrow, and leading the trio, a product of Julian Joseph's jazz education programme and Berklee, Boston, USA, the fabulous Jas Kayser.

A blues, Monk, Stan Tracey, it was all in there, the tune? Wig Wise from Money Jungle. Absolutely sensational! To finish their set, (In My) Solitude. Live stream of the year. Russell

Set list: Money JungleComes LoveJoshuaJust Squeeze Me (?); Caravan(In My) Solitude.
