genre bending

At The Lamb on Tuesday Elizabeth Guthrie read poems of notable wit. Jeff Hilson delivered more excerpts from his ongoing ‘organ’ series. These pieces, at once roistering and self-deprecating went down a storm. David Miller and Ken White played clarinet and guitar mixing improvisation with standard charts. Miller's performance belied what he's said about being a little rusty. It powerfully combines legacies from Coltrane to traditional musics. White is a subtle accompanist and a fine singer, delivering 'Nature Boy' with a light voice reminiscent of Chet Baker. Needless to say a good evening was had by the crowd.
