Cathrine Summers Quartet

cathrine summers covIt felt as though we had stepped back into the past. What a funky vibe! Maybe not quite as polished as Ronnie Scott's in London but with very much the same attentive, appreciative audience of jazz aficionados. From broad daylight at 3.00pm Sunday afternoon in a main Fremantle street we rose, to a dimly lit room with garlands of light bulbs strung over the bar!

Cathrine Summers and her excellent band were doling out generous sets to an obviously receptive crowd. From 3.00 to 6.00pm is a fair slab of performance time but there was no lacking in pace or delivery here. The ever-reliable Summers displayed her lovely intonation and impeccable phrasing with panache. She looked a treat, dressed to thrill.

What a great ensemble!

Austin Salisbury on piano was extraordinarily good. Time keeper, on drums Daniel Harrison was excellent. Bassist, Alistair Peel played some wonderful riffs. Gorgeous highlights were What a Difference a Day Makes and a superb version of Summertime.

The Navy Club is in danger of closing and so the first of many fundraisers was held on Friday 24 May. A highly successful gig featuring Deborah Conway.

Here's to many more to save this delightful little venue.
