ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These songs are for people who love to swing....

Give me sunshine - and give me rain, this is about the happiest break up song I could write, it's not about bad feelings, it's about wanting to have joy again and living the life you've always dreamed, this is for the optimistic..... For the people who love sunshine, cherries and who dance and get the jibberlies
Tim Forster - sax solo "how much is that doggy in the window"
Mike cartwright, tim Forster - backing vocals

Mack the knife - for those of you who don't know, Bobby Darin is one the greatest exponents of the American songbook, this our tribute to him and (a brief moment of sentimentality) my mum, she loves this song and she sings along whenever she hears it, may you all be blessed to have someone in your life like her, she taught me how to live.

Baby won't you please come home - in this one, I play the role of Louis prima and the lovely Jessie gordon plays the role of Keely Smith. When you listen to this, imagine your at the flamingo in Vegas, Louis Prima is up on stage keeping the audience on the edge of the seat, just waiting for what he is going to sing next...
It's you it's me - aaaaahhhh Jessie Gordon, what a sound, what a singer, she gives me a chance to play some trumpet on this one, this is a swingin' number to get the fingers clickin'.
Jessie gordon - vocals
Adam Hall - trumpet solo

It's you, it's me
Just rejoice in the sound that is Jessie gordon, I get a chance to play some trumpet on this one, it's quite special. Enjoy!
Jessie gordon - vocals
Adam hall trumpet solo

I'm in the mood for love - another Louis and keely duet, this time Jessie and I trade 4's (you sing 1 phrase I'll sing the other). This is really a case of anything you can do, I can do better.... We had a lot of fun doing this, you can really hear it on the recording.
Jessie gordon - vocals

after you've gone - this arrangement was made famous by Lavern baker. We go from single time to double time, watch out!, this song is not as slow as it seems.
Tim Forster - sax solo
Jessie gordon - vocals

Felicia no capicia - this is not a true story, it's the wonderful world of mr Louis prima. Full of amazing Italian references. It's just a really fun song to sing and there's so much space to enjoy yourself.

Adam hall - trumpet solo
Tim Forster - backing vocals

Mardi GRAS - remember everybody.."If you go to New Orleans....... you got to go see the Mardi GRAS", Listen to Lenny open it up at the start with some fine honky Tonkin on the grand piano, then just wait for Ric Eastman and ben franz to start dominating on this one, specialists in the New Orleans groove, amazing bass playing and drumming... Mike and I join in the parade on the fine 2nd line, Let the good times roll everybody
Mike cartwright - trombone solo
Adam hall - trumpet solo

Let's have a party tonight -
On our first tours around the countryside this was our opening song, it would set the tone for the evening. We are a band that we love the audience to become involved in, sing along, scream and shout, dance, whatever takes your fancy, iget a little bit antsy make sure you have a dancy. This is a special dedication to the dancers who always get up first when everyone else is being a little shy....Jenny, Sam and Holly make sure you dance to this one.
Tim Forster - sax solo
Len Whittle - piano solo
Tim Forster, mike cartwright, Jessie gordon - backing vocals

Jump jive n wail - a Louis prima classic song, the whole band gets involved on this one. From a marvelous night at the flybynight club in Fremantle, listen for Richard Jackson and Jessie on the background vocals. What a great night!
Tim Forster - sax solo
Mike cartwright - trombone solo
Len whittle - piano solo
Richard Jackson, Jessie gordon, tim Forster, Joe whittle, len whittle, mike cartwright - backing vocals

Alright all night - there are boogie players and then there's Lenny whittle, if you haven't heard him live, come see us sometime... Here's Lenny captured live, no 2nd takes, no edits, just some good ol driving boogie woogie. It's a privilege to stand on stage and witness this first hand.... Special
Len whittle - digital piano

I wanna be like you - this a very special "jam session" version of this song. Watch out for Joey on the floor Tom beating that rhythm like a double barrel bazooka and Check out the trading at the end of the song. There's trumpets, trombones, vocals all in for good measure. Richard jackson really shines on this one, he is a great friend and it's an honor to play music with him.
