Super tenor saxophonist Alexey Nikolaev was back in The Georgian Restaurant inside The Fairmont Olympic Hotel for more tenor sax and bass duo combo at Jazz in The Georgian. It's a real privilege and treat to be able to play with one of the very best sax players in the region as well as international level. Alexey, a native of Moscow, Russia, is a gentleman who is always warm and gracious with whom to work. We have a couple video highlights from our gig this evening and also a video from last month's gig.
This first song is a wonderful ballad called Autumn in New York.
Autumn in New York
Sir Paul McCartney was performing a concert at Safeco Field at the very moment Alexey and I were playing. It would have been great to see the former legendary Beatle, but, hey, we were working. In his honor we played one of his famous tunes that he co-wrote with that other legendary Beatle John Lennon called Yesterday.
This last video was actually from our gig together on June 21 last month. This is an excellent rendition of a great Cole Porter tune called You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To.
You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To
We hope that you enjoy these songs from our gig. But there is nothing like being there to witness live performance. We invite you to come out to The Georgian and see Alexey and I play live. Alexey Nikolaev will be back for Jazz in The Georgian on Friday, August 23.
