TODAY: THE DAISY BOWLERS, LIVE IN THE "SUNDAY JAZZ LOUNGE" STUDIO!
In today's episode of Sunday Jazz Lounge we feature our very first live performance! I can hardly contain my excitement as I delight in the gorgeous harmonies of local jazz superstars Heather Simmons, Debbie Bines and Dave Cooke: the spectacular Daisy Bowlers. We'll listen to some of their recordings as well as their live performance, and I will join them on a number at the end of their live segment. My colleague Doug Kaye sends in a report from the jazz trenches and tells us all about the grand opening of the Jazz Café and Living Jazz Heritage Room, in Southend; and we will hear other fabulous vocal jazz groups, such as The Andrews Sisters, The Manhattan Transfer, The Ink Spots and Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, amongst other vocal gems. Don't miss this uplifting and life-affirming edition of Sunday Jazz Lounge!
