Brand New Music For 2019

27FC2F9A-B32E-473D-8CD5-F9D48B17CFAD

Absolutely thrilled to be going back into the studio to make 26 brand new tracks for my live gigs.  This year I’ll be stepping into sonic recording studios with the fantastic Scott Flanigan, his bass player Rohan and the very talented Rick Swann on Trumpet.  This year I will be arranging old songs my way!  Songs like; The Good Life, S’Wonderful, The Best Is Yet To Come, A Foggy Day, Girl From Ipanema, It Happened In Monterey & many more …. Some of the songs featured will be accompanied only by Scott on Piano, then the rest with be a mix of the other two instruments.  This gives me a brand new bag of music to perform with all over the country.

Fantastic reviews pouring in from the “Saturday Swings” shows @theivory Belfast, located at the top of Victoria Square.  Here you’ll find amazing city views, with some of the best food and drinks in town, and of course, yours truly performing beautiful soft Jazz.  The music is a varied mix of standards ranging from Cole Porter classics to Duke Ellingtons swinging numbers.  Songs that were brought to light by the likes of Nat King Cole, Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and Buddy Greco to name but a few … Come check out some live Jazz in Belfast …

“The annual celebration of jazz and big bands will feature artists from all over the world and welcome more than 60,000 revellers over the bank holiday weekend.”

This year I got to perform for the brilliant Derry Jazz Festival.  Playing venues like the Maldron Hotel, Bishops Gate Hotel and The City Hotel, rooftop terrace.  What a brilliant turnout at every single gig!  I varied the set to suit each performance and included beautiful standards such as;

All The Way

Our Love Is Here To Stay

Blame It On My Youth

Where Or When

I’m Old Fashioned

On The Street Where You Live

More

In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning

I’ve Got The World On A String

The Way You Look Tonight

Smile

The Shadow Of Your Smile

I’m Going To Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter

& Many Many More …

Making Brand New Music With The Scott Flanigan Quartet.

955F98A9-019D-4799-97A8-A97D1C96DEA1

In March 2018 I decided to team up with the ultra talented Scott Flanigan and his quartet to make some new music.  Scott was kind enough to re-write 20 arrangements to my specification.  The arrangements were then taken to Sonic Recording Studios where we recorded these charts with Scott and his quartet.  The songs I chose were a mix of the great standards made famous by singers like; Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett to mention a few.  The music was recorded for me to use at my live gigs an events, giving me the most professional, crisp and polished backing tracks in the country.

We recorded songs like;

Me & Mrs Jones

Our Love Is Here To Stay

Cheek To Cheek

Do Nothing Till You Hear It From Me

In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning

More

The Shadow Of Your Smile

That Old Feeling & Many More …

“Swing, Jazz & Big Band @ The Ivory, Belfast”

IMG_4710

Going into my second year as the resident Swing Singer in The Ivory Restaurant, Victoria Square, Belfast I can honestly say it’s one of the hottest spots in Belfast.  With mouth watering fine dining and breathtaking views of the city, it’s the perfect spot for relaxing cool vocal Jazz.  Playing mainly an early spot from 7PM to 9PM on select Saturday nights I have been entertaining capacity crowds with dozens of standards every night … Songs you can expect to hear in this premier venue include;

All Of Me

Smile

The Very Thought Of You

Moon River

Come Fly With Me

That’s Life

In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning

It’s Only A Paper Moon

Blame It On My Youth

It Had To Be You

Let’s Fall In Love

Oh Look At Me Now

Route 66

Unforgettable

You Make My Feel So Young & so many more ….

 

I mix the set up every night, keeping all of the great standards but never in the same or order and never performed the same way twice.
