Ruby & the Ruff Cuts, band launch @ Olives 4 October 2013

Ruby and the Ruff Cuts, band launch night at Olives cafe in Norwich, 4 October, 2013 review

It was hard to believe this was actually a launch night and first open gig for the jazzy Ruby & the Ruff Cuts, so accomplished is their playing one could be excused for thinking they have been playing together for years.

This was a lovely and intimate set, the only thing that felt missing was some cigarette smoke, this was pure jazz in the best sense of the word. Ruby has a tremendous voice and seems to sing so effortlessly, and is backed by some high pedigree musicians, with some superb saxophone, warm bass grooves, excellent guitar from Morgan of the Sweetbeats, and a fine drummer.

Olives was pretty much full for this gig, with loads of familiar faces in attendance to hear two sets by this band, which included some covers by Melody Gardot and Madeleine Peroux. Highly impressive first gig. Without trying too hard, Ruby (also of The Voxettes) commands the stage in an understated manner by her natural presence, finger clicking, grace and her so smooth voice.
