JAZZ REVIEW OF THE ROB TERRY TRIO, PRINCE OF WALES, SHRIVENHAM, THURSDAY 28th OF JUNE.

Shrivenham's jazz aficionados were presented with an evening of stunning jazz music from the Rob Terry Trio. Pianist composer Rob Terry is an excellent musician, both tasteful and versatile and a generous collaborator with the other musicians in the trio. Graduate of Birmingham University, Rob has performed with Eartha Kitt, Gloria Gaynor, Lulu and the Kimbara Bros. He's appeared at the Royal Albert Hall, the Festival Hall, the Vortex & 606 jazz clubs plus Ronnie Scott's. On Thursday night he played a selection of originals including Walking and Romance and the standards Caravan, There Will Never Be Another You and Have You Met Miss Jones. The trio finished with Rob's own jazz composition Meditation in G flat, displaying his classical background. Paul Jefferies is a fine bassist with a rich, comfortable, inventive and lyrical sound. Charlie Stratford completed the trio, a powerful drummer who studied at Berklee college, Boston, USA. It was a first rate evening of jazz from a truly excellent trio.
