HALL & CO

Great evening’s entertainment from the wonderful musicianship that is  Jon Hall – Piano,Graeme Nairn – Guitar and Flute,Bill Jannetta – Double Bass and Harry McFarlane – Drums. One might be forgiven that we were at a comedy club insofar as certain members of the band were getting stick, and giving it back. At one stage Bill Jannetta was so incensed with the flack he was getting that he said ‘it was like being back in school’…not bad for a gentleman who is over……50..ish.  In spite of this well-intentioned banter, the band gave a great exposition of all that is best in jazz with many favourites  including: ‘Without a song’   Vincent Youmans;‘It could happen to you’  Jimmy Van Heusen;  ‘Sometime ago’ Sergio Mihanovich; ‘Gentle rain’ Luiz Bonfá;‘Like Someone In love’ Jimmy van Heusen;‘Night of a Thousand eyes’ Jerry Brainin;‘I fall in love too easily’  Jule Styne;‘Easy to love’ Cole Porter;‘Flamingo’ Ted Grouya;‘Yesterdays’ Jerome Kern;‘How insensitive’ Antônio Carlos Jobim;‘The nearness of you’ Hoagy Carmichael;‘Falling in love with love’ Richard Rogers; and ‘Meditation’ Antonio Carlos Jobim.
