An evening with the humorous, entertaining and talented house band that is Colin Henderson [Baritone and Alto Sax and Flute], Graeme Nairn [ Guitar], Bill Jannetta [Electric Bass], Alistair Stuart [Drums] and Pamela Nairn [Vocals].
The band took us through a familiar and not so familiar set that included ‘I hear a rhapsody’– George Fragos; ‘Tenderly’- Walter Gross; ‘What more can I say’– Ross Jack; ‘When you wish upon a star ‘- Leigh Harline & Ned Washington; ‘What a difference a day makes’– María Grever & Stanley Adams; ‘Love me or leave me’– Walter Donaldson & Gus Kahn; ‘Perhaps’- Victor Davies;’ Holding hands at night beneath the starry sky’ –Gershwin; ‘Cheesecake’- Dexter Gordon; ‘Stardust’- Hoagy Carmichael; ‘ Lullaby Of Birdland’ – George Shearing;’ September in the rain’- Harry Warren; ‘Besame Mucho’-Consuelo Velazquez; ‘You make me feel so young‘- Josef Myrow.
It is always a pleasure to hear Pamela sing and bringing alive some great Jazz songs from the 1940’s to the 1960’s. Graeme was on form with a bluesy number by Sandy Williams, Bill and Alistair provided a rich tonal backdrop on the rhythm section and Colin as ever showed his virtuosity on saxophones and flute. Many thanks Pamela and gents.
