Barbara Morrison is without doubt a world class jazz and blues singer. She toured the world with Ray Charles for seven years. Here in Edinburgh, she is appearing in a tiny, intimate venue above a bar. You feel as if she is performing for a bunch of old friends in her living room. She even helped mop up a beer spillage at one point!
The music is great and wide-ranging, beautifully delivered by The Tom Finlay Trio. Highlights included 'I Loves You Porgy' and 'They Call Me Sundown (I do my best work after dark)'. Morrison's delight in performing these great songs envelops the whole room. There are many performers, who should pay Miss Morrison a visit to see how she communicates with her audience.
This funny,sassy, personable lady,above all a great singer, delivers a joyous evening of wonderful music and pure fun.
