Zoe Schwarz/Rob Koral Quintet
with Robin Aspland (pno), Steve Thompson (bs) & Paul Robinson (dms)
Thu 12 Dec Lauderdale House
£9 (£7.50 concs)
Zoe with her new partner, guitarist Rob Koral, has established several groups, from a duo to blues bands and this, their jazz quintet with major players Robin Aspland, Paul Robinson & Steve Thompson. Zoe’s repertoire is wonderfully eclectic from deep down blues to Ray Charles soul, with more than a hint of Billie Holiday’s passion on conventional standards. Playing to a packed Methodist church in Swanage this year, they received a storming reception.
