John Law ‘Re-Creations’

Friday, January 10, 2020

‘Re-Creations’ John Law – piano & glockenspiel, Sam Crockett – tenor and soprano sax, James Agg – bass, Paolo Adamo – drums.
A fascinating selection of music beginning with Erik Satie’s Gymnopédie No.1 then jumping straight into ‘Let’s Face the Music and Dance’, followed by an interpretation of Adele’s ‘Hello’.
This gives a good indication of the range of tunes we were to be presented with during the evening. The second set began with a particularly enjoyable version of ‘Over The Rainbow’ with more than a nod to minimalism.
This was followed by John’s sometimes brittle arrangements of Radiohead and McCartney material, with the programme finishing with John Lennon’s ‘ Imagine’.
Clearly this was a unique concert appealing to those with eclectic taste, performed by a quartet demonstrating fine musicianship.
