Old Devil Moon: Swinging Through the Songs of Burton Lane

 

 

             Review by Brenda Repland

 

Artistic Director Bill Charlap, celebrating his 15th year with the Jazz in July Festival, presented a thrilling evening of music on Thursday to cap the two weeks. 

 

The group opened with a rousing “I Hear Music,” a medley of pieces that included both alto and tenor saxophones.

 

Sandy Stewart sang a heartfelt “How Are Things in Glocamorra?”  Her delicious mezzo was complemented by trombone. 

 

Roxy Coss played “Everything I Have Is Yours” on tenor sax.  Such a New York sound!

 

“On A Clear Day . . .” brought together all the musicians with a particularly dreamy opening by Bill Charlap on piano.  The alto sax was especially lyrical.

 

For a rare treat, Charlap played AND sand “Come Back To Me,” from “On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.”

 

Sandy Stewart sang a luscious duet with alto sax of “Moments Like This.”  It brought the house down with applause.

 

Roxy Coss on tenor sax joined Ms. Stewart for “What Did I Have I Don’t Have now?”  No one can convey the blues like Sandy Stewart!

 

The performance closed with “Old Devil Moon,” by the whole crew.
