JAZZ REVIEW - PAUL BUCK TRIO, PRINCE OF WALES, SHRIVENHAM

Shrivenham jazz aficionados were presented with an evening of extraordinary jazz piano from the Paul Buck trio. Paul is a remarkable pianist, able to blend the many elements of pop and jazz into intelligent and accessible music. Outstanding drummer Terry Howard pushed the trio along with swinging precision. Completing the group, bassist Clive Morton played with a sensitive and delicate touch.

The evening's jazz commenced with the title tune from the 1924 Broadway musical Lady Be Good by George and Ira Gershwin. Toots Thieleman's composition Bluesette followed. Chattanooga Choo Choo, the 1942 gold disc made famous by the Glenn Miller Orchestra, preceded Jerome Kern's Pick Yourself Up. St Thomas from the repertoire of tenor sax giant Sonny Rollins changed the mood yet again. The evening's music concluded with the beautiful 1921 song Just Friends.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening of piano jazz and all for FREE.
