Thanks to Stephen Graham at Marlbank for this writeup of last week’s gig with the downright special Mr McLean.
If you stick the words “jazz” and “violin” together, most people will be mentally transported to a Parisian boîte with Honeysuckle Rose jing-jick-jing-jicking away through the Gauloise fug.
Lovely though Hot Club stuff may be, as the review points out, there’s an awful lot more to Benet than that…
Marlbank is a really good jazz blog and well worth nosing around. Stephen knows what he’s talking about (I’m not just saying that because they reviewed us!)
