Jack Neal Reno Gazette - Pasadena Roof Orchestra USA tour

jazz-coverBut as good as they all are, and they all are terrific, the catalyst that moves the Pasadena Roof Orchestra from first rate to memorable is the brash magnetism and suave exterior of singer and dancer Duncan Galloway.

Duncan Galloway Quartet- Wow! What a great evening, a complete sell out…the quartet were brilliant, with singer Duncan Galloway the piano player the musical director for Bryan ferry and the bass play from Acker Bilks band we shouldn’t be surprised….we heard music from Cole Porter, amd Irving berlin with hit songs that were sung by Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra , a great evenng enjoyed by all.

He doesn’t sing and he doesn’t play saxophone, he lives the music and transformed the club into a swinging jazz club with a breath of the big wide world. Duncan is not any singer, he is the frontman of the world famous Pasadena Roof Orchestra. He has a wide range in every single piece wether rocking as Elvis with’ Blue suede Shoes’ swinging with ‘Come Fly with me’ or soft and feeling with ‘Georgia on my Mind’ where he also plays a mellow toned saxophone.

The man also achieves a version of ‘Sex Bomb’ which is even better that the original Tom Jones. With ‘I’ve grown accustomed to her face’ as Professor Higgins he shows that he is a little nearer to Eliza than the film with Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison would suggest.
