Angus Munro puts down his piano-playing technique, telling the packed house at the Jazz Cafe he's self taught. Well, his fingering may be bad for his hands, but it certainly doesn't hurt the ears of the audience - he makes sweet music indeed.

Munro is a great singer-songwriter too... imagine if Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook had a kid, ladle on the looks of Peter Gabriel, add a Joe Jackson vibe and you're partway there. It's not the whole story, though - Munro's soaring voice and cheeky humour are all his own. As for the songs, they're inventive, melodic, somewhere between pop and jazz... it's hard to put your finger on that special something Munro has, but he has it in spades. He also has a terrific regular band, backing vocalists and a cameo from the sax god that is Tom Pickles (aka 'Tommy P'). His own songs are so good that when he throws in a glorious Elvis Costello cover, it's almost a disappointment. It's a shame this was a one-off show - the clue's in the title - because I want to see it all over again.

Angus Munro is going big any day now, and I'm lucky to be able to say 'I saw him when...'
