Live Performance in Hertford,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Spinning Top (Audio CD)
I saw Graham's trio last night in Hertford. He only played tracks from this album and it is more of a mellow affair, but still with some kick to it. It may be a cliché these days, but the sound was evocative of Nick Drake in places; intricate acoustic guitar pick, double bass and effortless vocals. Great to see him break into an unexpected alto-sax (?) on one track. He declined requests for older music, like Freaking Out as he claimed he couldn't do it justice because "Mr. Gibson" was at home. I'm glad he resisted the urge, he's clearly proud of this and so he should be. Looking forward to the album.
