Milestones Jazz Club - The steady beacon which shines for jazz in Lowestoft, first Sunday evening of each month, at The Hotel Hatfield

(I'm grateful to Hil for forwarding me this review of Zoe's recent Lowestoft gig.
Lance.)
I said, “There is, in this writer’s opinion, a great gig coming up that should not be missed.”
Well, it is gratifying to occasionally be proved correct. Zoe Gilby, supported by Andy Champion (bass), Simon Browne (piano) and Brian McAlister (drums), managed with ease to entice out a large number of local jazz fans on a cold ‘most easterly’ night, and this included our contingent of SJF representatives.
All of the first set was taken by Zoe showcasing a selection of her fine repertoire, often very much as a front line jazz instrument, backed up with just Andy Champion on double bass. Not easy to do I imagine, but this lady made it look effortless.
During the second set Zoe was backed by the trio in more conventional style. If you are sorry to have missed this great evening, then watch for further appearances and try to include her in your diary of ‘must have’ dates - we believe you will not be disappointed.
You can hear and learn more via this link - Zoe Gilby.
The next gig at Milestones is on Sun 7th March 2010 when the feature will be the ever popular Jim Mullen Organ Trio.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
