Last Friday was one of the very best sessions at the Grand: Tess Murphy singing there for the first time, Danilo a revelation on drums, Stan the Man on bass playing better than ever, and John Curtis, in a brand new but almost entirely tasteless flat cap, holding it all together as only John can. Tess led them all through an array of tempos and tunes of a high, high standard – and they swung!
This week, the gorgeous Amy Jaulin returns with another collection of jazz standards, blues, ballads and show tunes. Amy has the knack of beguiling her audience with a stunning voice, a winning smile and 3” eyelashes. It is a killer combination…she will be accompanied by Rene Tessmer on bass and meself on Piano. There will almost certainly be a drummer, and I almost certainly haven’t arranged one just yet…
Amy Jaulin Sings! The Grand Hotel, Cnr Flinders and Spencer Streets, Fridayt May 10th from 5.30pm
