FDR LOVE OF JAZZ
Phil Bancroft, with that other young Edinburgh tenor saxophonist, Tommy Smith, has been oti on tour, putting some reedy muscle into the back line oi Hue and Cry. An enjoyable, it not too technically demanding experience, it has the added attraction, tor a jazz player, oi paying well. But people play jazz because they love it, because they have to, and tor the huge stimulous oi interacting, and improvising within a group oi like minds. Phil's band, The John Rae Collective are just such a conjunction. Fortheirages, long on experience, they project an enthusistic cohesion and unity oi purpose while still allowing the individual voices expression within their bop-and-beyond musical idiom.
Edinburgh audiences marvelled at Brian Kellock's recent series oi Queens Hall openers where he let loose on the Steinway, with each week only one oi the Collective ior company. it is perhaps uniair to pick out two irom such a strong 6-man line up, better to recommend them as the best band to have emerged in this country tor a long while, and to catch them at the last Maylest gig in Glasgow's Shed on the 21st.
Edinburgh's Queens Hall is an intimate venue tor a singer as popular as the Southern Belle Marion Montgomery. To a packed house on the 26th, with the impeccable musical sense oi Richard Rodney Bennett on the piano, she will work through the great body oi classy popular song, irom Irving Berlin to Stephen Sondheim, that was smothered in the smoke oi the rock and roll revolution, and is being rediscovered by the younger generation as it endlessly recycles the past, searching tor innocence in style, and iinding that things careiully wrought, last longer.
The vogueish denizens oi Edinburgh's Gilded Balloon might raise an eyebrow at the Wizard Di Jazz, see photo, on the 23rd. in the Balloon’s Theatre tor one night, TNT Company’s touring production manages to have Yank servicemen, Welsh pubs, Al Johnson and a modern jazz group zipped into a surreal black comedy. See Listings iorthe line up oi musicians. (Norman Chalmers).
