Review of MIE Presents Jazz at 1901

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

Another fun and friendly gig at this lovely venue so convenient for Waterloo station. Great to hear such accomplished musicians doing an acoustic set. There were even young couples canoodling to jazz in the back row, who would have thought!

This was a well organised gig at a delightfully intimate venue. I hope there will be many more similar at 1901.

Another great gig presented by Terry and Janet for Mood Indigo in the very elegant and cosy surroundings of the 1901 Arts Club. Featuring veteran stalwart of the British jazz scene, Art Themen, on tenor and soprano saxes, accompanied by Terry on piano and Nick Lenner-Webster on double bass: both rightly described by Art as being "at the top of their game". And so was he, presenting a lovely variety of jazz standards encompassing the likes of Dexter Gordon, Thelonious Monk and Mal Waldron. The performance was made even more enjoyable by Art's humorous banter as well as multiple "quoting" by all the musicians during their solos creating a sort of "guess that tune" vibe. An excellent evening all round.

Lovely intimate acoustic gig within staggering distance of Waterloo station. Really friendly atmosphere, like an old salon concert but without any stuffiness!

Review of Gilad Atzmon, Terence Collie Duo

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

What a great setting for a classic duo performance by Gilad and Terence: the 1901 Arts Club is a wonderfully intimate venue for chamber events, with friendly, helpful staff and an excellent bar and lounge upstairs. Terry is always reliable in supporting or leading a very wide range of musicians. Gilad was a revelation to me, having outrageously prodigious technique on alto and soprano saxes and clarinet. I normally cringe when I see a "modernist" playing the latter as it reminds me of (for me) the bad old days of British trad jazz. He also has a fantastic, cheeky sense of humour which brilliantly rounded out the whole performance. What a shame he is moving to Greece - another tragic consequence of you-know-what.

Very good indeed. Nearly perfect if that's possible. Gilad was carried away with In a Sentimental Mood, though still enjoyed. And Terence Collie is great as an accomplice and playing along. Great when, I think they were playing two Trane numbers at the same time. Lovely place and great crowd.
