Great to be back at the Archduke this Saturday 18th February. Looking forward to playing with Chris Lee again. We're on at 7.30 and, if that's not enough for you, you can loiter on and listen to the amazing Tim Armacost and Michael Janisch Quartet at 10.00.
I've been having a lot of fun playing these with Jon Hawkins and Geoff Castle on piano and Andy Hamilton on sax. A very civilised way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
If you like jazz and you like lunch (and who doesn't) there's more info here.
Kicking off with the adrenalized title track, taken from the Sondheim musical Anyone Can Whistle, this hugely enjoyable 14-track collection from vocalist Mark Jennett presents a mix of standards, show tunes and pop classics. From the syncopated electric piano riff that gently propels ‘Are You There (With Another Boy) forward, to the slinky, head-nodding take on ‘How Long Has This Been Going On’, to the pared down voice, bass and drums interpretation of ‘Oh, Look At Me Now’, Geoff Gascoyne’s arrangements are first rate.
