Maple Blues Award winning pianist David Vest explores the connection between the blues and the music of another singing piano player, Hoagy Carmichael. You’ll hear the hits, from Stardust to Georgia On My Mind, from Skylark to Baltimore Oriole, along with some lesser-known but equally entertaining pieces. There’s a reason why these songs have been covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Ray Charles, Linda Ronstadt, and George Harrison: this is music with real character, and DV’s got just the right combo to play it.
The David Vest Band includes Damian Graham on drums, Ryan Tandy on bass, and Tom Bowler on guitar.
