Blue Velvet Jazz

Live at the Sir Stamford Hotel, Circular Quay.

Bye Bye Blackbird, by the American composer Ray Henderson and lyricist Mort Dixon, is a timeless classic recorded by numerous artists since its release in 1926. Julie London, John Coltrane, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and many others recorded their own special interpretations, and the song continues to be released by contemporary artists such as Melody Gardot.

It’s a favourite for us as well, playing here are Peter Rundle (piano), Sarah Lorien (vocals), Michael Trifunovic (guitar) and Maxwell Madden (double bass).
