London Jazz club 2018 - Review of Hot Club Strut
One of the best nights, so far, we have had at the KJC and this performance will take a lot of beating. This was to be a tribute to Stephane Grappelli, the Jazz violinist extraordinaire.
The fiddle is beautifully played by Sally Minchin who exhibits her classical training with a small rendition of Jules Massenet “Meditation from Thais”. This was to represent the roots of Grappeli’s violin playing. Accompanying her in this, on piano, was Rich Hughes. And so begins a musical biography of Grappelli from his early beginnings in the 1920s up to his death in the late 1990s.
The bands’ music is punctuated by Sally’s narration of Grappelli’s life with various renditions of his music throughout.
Other members of the band are Andy Bole on guitar (funny guy), with Simon Smith playing double bass…(beautifully).. On percussion was Grahame Smith with his usual dynamism for all types of jazz music.
The music throughout the evening was magnificently executed and the Grappelli swing versions of Cole Porter and George Gershwin’s compositions went down a storm with the very packed room. At the end of the performance a well deserved ovation was given by all for a magnificent performance and I for one would like to see a return to the club of this band. After returning home from the club I stayed up late with Youtube and took a closer look at the legendary Stephane Grappelli and his music. The evening with Hot Club Strut was that inspiring!
