Vintage Live Music: A Lifetime of Listening and Learning
You’ve heard of never playing the same thing twice?
We never play anything the same way once.
That’s because we are literally the finest improvisers in the world, and can turn a hip hop song into a wedding processional — or a classical tune into rock and roll in an instant if we want to.
Most of my musical colleagues started making music professionally when they were about thirteen years old.
I was a “band singer” at that age. Stand up, sit down…
We’re a little more creative these days.
It’s Benny Goodman meets Bobby Darin, Lena Horne…and Shirley Horn.
Throw in the best of Anka, Sinatra, Bennett, Buble…and vintage doo-wop.
Peggy Lee, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, The Beatles, rocking re-mixes, soul, funk, traces of hip hop and classical, mega-ballroom and The Rat Pack…sometimes all in the same set.
What we do seems so easy now, I sometimes forget how long it took to acquire this repertoire.
