Live Review: Neal Richardson Trio at Seaford Golf Club
Neal Richardson Trio plus Guests
The View, Seaford Head Golf Club, Seaford.
Sunday 7th Feb. 2016
Neal Richardson, piano, vocals; Nigel Thomas, bass; Eric Ford, drums
Guests: Adam Glasser, chromatic harmonica; Sue Richardson, trumpet
Special guest: Abi Glasser (Adam’s daughter), vocals, one number.
Once a month at The View, Seaford Head Golf Club, the Neal Richardson trio perform, with guests, two sets of enjoyable jazz, with informality being the name of the game. The venue is splendidly situated (when the weather is nice) on top of the cliffs at Seaford. The clue is in the name.
An attentive audience, many having just finished a full Sunday lunch, fully appreciated the mixture of standards and originals (by Neal). Also, a world first we were informed, the performance of Billy Strayhorn’s Lush Life on chromatic harmonica. Adam deserves a medal. His daughter Abi duly sung one number, and the ever inventive Sue completed the guest line-up.
Check out the website for full details, and discover an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The bonus is, next month you get the chance to sample the wares free of charge, and from April there will be a modest charge of £5. Go for it.
Andy Panayi on sax is the guest next month, the 6th March.
