John Wilson Orchestra

Recommended Posts

Was at the Concert Hall last night to see and hear the John Wilson orchestra on their annual tour date.He was playing Gershwin ,and it was absolutely magical.This likeable,geeky young man from Newcasle,has brought,note by note,the movie scores of the countless songs of the greats like the Gershwin's,Rodgers and Hammerstein etc.etc.to todays' audiences.The hall was a sell out, as it is every year wherever he goes,and it was the quickest,most joyous two and a half hours.It caters for a neglected,and much overlooked audience of a certain age.Older ladies and gents,all neat as pins, with highly polished shoes,and mostly all "well sorted" and enjoying a Bacardi and coke pre show.The lyrics of these songs were lovely,and clever and poetic,and the two vocalists with the orchestra knocked their sox off with their renditions.Can you tell I liked it?

That sounds like a brilliant night, willie. I particularly like Gershwin's music but here's some Rodgers and Hammerstein.
