Live Review - Jagz, Ascot 8/9/15

I just came across this review at W21Music.com from the recent show at Jagz in Ascot that was hosted by my friends Alan West & Steve Black earlier this month. Here's an excerpt from the review of my solo set in the middle "half" of the show...

"It was time for long time West/Black associate Adam Sweet to take to the stage with a set that fitted neatly under the umbrella of Americana. Starting with the blues shuffle of "At Times Like This" from his "Small Town Thinking" cd which was the basis of a lot of the set. The folkish "Doin' Alright" followed. Adam was ever the genial host giving a bit of background to the songs, though the up tempo "The Next Man After Me" had a pretty clear narrative that needed little explaining. It was back to the blues for "Name Your Price" about selling your soul. There was time for an unreleased co write called "Take Your Time" which had a touch of John Martyn about it on first listen and was very impressive. The final song of his set was the tale of an evening in Greece which left Adam wiser if considerably poorer, "Santarosa Street". It was an entertaining set, well played well sung, and certainly enough to justify seeing Adam in an extended format."

Thanks to Fran & Chris for the kind words...you can read the full review of a rather eclectic evening here.
