Chasing the Moon bring their unique and entertaining performance style to Foundry 616 for the launch of their new CD. Inspired by the romantic and swinging sounds of Hot Club Jazz the band creates an intriguing palette of swing, chanson, Latin, blues and modern sounds. The new CD features a mix of original songs and instrumentals coupled with arrangements that tease new threads out of classic tunes. With its balance of soulful ballads, exquisite melodies, Latin flavours and up-tempo tunes, this music is engaging and accessible with the ability to appeal to a wide audience.
Out front are vocalist and violinist Kathy Bluff, delivering her distinctive style of soulful vocals and swinging jazz violin with warmth and charm, and saxophone/flute player Paul Burjan whose playing has a sensuous elegance as well as grunt and roar when required. There is a range and quality to the ensemble sound of strings and wind as solos pass from one player to another and each member gets a chance to shine. Well known gypsy jazz and swing guitarist, John Blenkhorn provides the rhythmic pulse as well as Djangoesque solos played with flair and attention to detail. That essential Parisian ambience comes with the piano accordion of Garry Steel an engaging performer and gifted musician. Jessica Dunn (Siren’s Big Band) on double bass plays intricate and always memorable solos and along with drummer Mike Quigley lays down the best of grooves, playing sweet and in the pocket. This is a band of high calibre musicians who play with musicality and flare.
Chasing the Moon’s music is complex and interesting and yet also packed full of engaging melodies and rhythms that will get the toes tapping and maybe even lead you onto the dance floor.
