We welcomed back Morag to MJC after a long absence, too long as Morag showed once again what a superb jazz talent she is. If you get the chance go and listen to  Morag at the Edinburgh Fringe on 15 and 22 August. She will be performing sixties numbers, think Cilla, Petula and Witney.

Morag was joined at MJC by Reiner Goldberg – Guitar, Lewis Benzies – Bass Guitar and Harry McFarlane – Drums. Morag took us on a vocal journey from classic twenties and thirties numbers through to the fifties and sixties including:

Harry Warren’s ‘September in the rain’;

Fats Waller ‘Homeysuckle Rose’ and  ‘Saving my love for you ‘;

Kirk Wild & Ogden Nash ‘Speak Low’;

Dorothy Fields ‘I  can give you anything but love’;

Brooks Bowman ‘East of the Sun(and west of the moon)’;

Hank Levy & Duke Ellington’s ‘Caravan’;

Antônio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes ‘The Girl from Ipanema’

Cole Porter ‘Lets  do it (Lets fall in Love)

Harold Ireland and Ted Koehler  ‘I’ve got the world on a string’;

Sonny Burke and Paul Webster ‘Black coffee’;

Carl Sigman &Bob Russell ‘Crazy he calls me’;

Reiner Goldberg also played a guitar original ‘Getting closer’
