SJN GIG OF THE MONTH: BEN CROSLAND QUINTET PLAYS THE RAY DAVIES SONGBOOK:

Ben Crosland (bass), Dave O’Higgins (saxophones), Steve Lodder (piano), Chris Allard (guitr), Sebastiaan de Krom (drums)

The Hive, Shrewsbury, 8pm, £18 /£9 Under 22’s. Tickets from The Hive 01743 234970 or www.hiveonline.org.uk; Pengwern Books 01743 232236

Ben Crosland’s interpretations of Davies’ idiosyncratic songs for the Kinks are full of delightful surprises. The tunes have “strong grooves, natural swing and evocative melodies” which make them excellent vehicles for jazz, and Crosland’s affectionate, sophisticated arrangements explore them in a range of styles from modal to Latin, bop to blues. They also provide fine frameworks for the superb soloists in what is truly an all-star group.
