Donnie Joe’s American Swing - Porthcawl Jazz Festival 2018

Backed by by Gareth Hall on piano, Ashley-John Long on double bass and Greg Evans on drums, his repertoire features a selection of carefully arranged swing and Latin standards associated with such greats as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Lester Young, Dizzy Gillespie, Mel Torme, Annie Ross, Blossom Dearie, Louis Armstrong, Dave Frishberg and John Pizzarelli. Fun and entertainment play a large part in the musical philosophy of the ex-pat American guitarist, singer and double bassist, now resident in South Wales, so don’t expect to go away with a frown on your face.
