The Jazztette plus Tom McGuire at the Felix

felixThe Jazztette band is led by legendary musician Peter Maguire (trombone), performing frequently at Felix, a cozy space for appreciating jazz music, which is in Tervuren, a suburb of Brussels. I love singing at Felix along with The Jazztette as we delight our audience with some of our favorites from the Great American Songbook.

Jazz Duo at Halles Saint-Géry in Brussels

Café des Halles Saint-Géry is a wonderfully convivial space in centrageryl Brussels where Robin Bollada (piano) and Tom McGuire (vocals) sometimes perform their jazz music entertainment.  Fun fact: over 100 years old, les Halles Saint-Géry is an architectural monument, including a fountain with an obelisk from Grimbergen Abbey – the point from which all distances in Belgium are measured.

Tom McGuire and The New Yorkers at The Music Village

mvoctbbThe axiom 'The Great American Songbook' hath charm, once again proved to be without dispute at The Music Village on Sunday the twenty eighth of October.

'The New Yorkers' delighted a packed house for three song filled sets. During the second set, classical pianist Ania Semkina, dazzled with her rendition of the song 'La Soledad'.

Both myself and 'The New Yorkers' are looking forward to retuning to The Music Village sometime in the near future.

Practice. Practice. Practice

tompdc01Having fun doing regular rehearsals with my jazz band “The New Yorkers” and always learning something. Rehersals are - at best - not a committee but a conversation.

Singing with “The Jazztette” led by Peter Maguire at our recent gig at Felix in Tervuren, Belgium, with an attentive audience and a musically fulfilling evening.  

Now getting ready for the next gigs in and around Brussels. Check out my schedule on the Gigs Page.

What a Wonderful World Strikes A Chord

wonderful world"What a Wonderful World" Bob Thiele (as "George Douglas") and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967.

This is one of those few, of this particular genre  of songs,  that always evokes a response even from an audience at straight ahead jazz sessions.

Summer Nights in Brussels

musicvillage01Brussels tends to a quietish place during the summer, excluding tourists that is. Parking the car is less of a hassle. Tuesday night The Music Village was packed to capacity. Great night with a distinct Coltrane vibe.

Looking forward to September and October with upcoming gigs scheduled. More about this later.

Vino Veritas, Waterloo. Cool sounds for a hot summer evening
