ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Celebrated ‘King of Swing’, New York pianist Gordon Webster, met Melbourne’s Hetty Kate on the bandstand at the swing dance event Jumptown Jam 2013.. amidst a crowded dance hall full of fast footwork, twirling skirts and dapper gentlemen. After this fateful meeting, and thanks to Swing Patrol Australia, Jumptown Swing and Australia's exuberant supportive dancers, Gordon and Hetty successfully fundraised and recorded an album in New York (Sept 2013).

About Gordon (piano) and Hetty (voice)

Well Gordon barely needs any introduction as he’s lauded as the number one pianist and bandleader for dancers, Gordon Webster regularly tours around the world, often invited to Europe and Asia as well as touring regularly across the USA. Drawing on influences as diverse as Fats Waller, Count Basie, Oscar Peterson and Gene Harris, Gordon passionately serves up a smorgasbord of styles unified by one characteristic.. irresistible danceability! Gordon has many albums on CDBaby, so make sure to search his name and check out all his music.

Pure of tone, sweet sounding and dangerously infectious, Melbourne jazz vocalist Hetty Kate has built quite a career for herself and can often be seen singing for packed dance floors at lindy-hop and blues events around Australia. Born in England, raised in Australia and now based out of Paris Hetty performs as a jazz vocalist at clubs and festivals, and has released 9 albums of her own. "Like Peggy Lee on a Vespa" Marc Myers Jazzwax USA. Hetty also has a few other albums on CDBaby, so please check them out and visit her on facebook whilst you're here!

Both Gordon and Hetty would like to thank all the generous supporters, and the welcoming swing community, it's a pleasure to play for you, and keep on dancing. We hope you like the album!
