DUNCAN GALLOWAY QUINTET

Robert Fowler, an outstanding saxophonist, joins the line- up of the Quartet.

The repertoire is similar to the smaller unit, drawing on all the musicians experience in the field of hot Jazz. Timeless standards such as ‘Georgia on my Mind’ and ‘It had to be You’ are nestled together, for example, with a red hot stomping version of ‘I found a new Baby.’ Duncan presents the ultimate American song book, with a dash of charm, plus the odd Dorothy Parker or Noel Coward anecdote!
