Review: Montero | The Fountain
Supporting Montero at a Monday night Hug and Pint gig, Barbe Rousse, otherwise known as Alastair Kelly, performed a fantastic set with band in tow, ensuring the crowd got their money’s worth before a solo Benny Montero took to the stage for something that seemed unrehearsed and improvised, but without the professionalism that we perhaps see at a jazz gig. But perhaps that’s his draw, this unpredictability and DIY approach which is also evident with his artwork.
