Cool Jazz Series 4 2005
BARBADOS - Cool Jazz Series 3
August Sunday 28th 2005

Chris Harper As Chris Harper made the introduction, patrons were already wondering how they were going to manage without their favourite monthly show. It was billed as the ‘All Star’ Edition of Cool Jazz and it lived up to that promise in the first class performance that the musical talent delivered at the final show of the 2005 Notes To Notes/Barbados National Terminal Co. Ltd Cool Jazz Series III, at the Southern Palms Hotel.
The fashions from Traffic Boutique were well received and it is probable that many from the audience will find themselves heading for the Wildey based boutique.

An attractive range of casual fashion opened the presentation.

The fashion show drew a couple of young spectators, designers of the future perhaps…

A Night When the Stars Shone Brightly

The final 2005 Cool Jazz for the year featured an excellent lineup of musicians who obviously enjoyed themselves as much as the audience did.

Andre Woodvine gave an inspired performance of his original piece Citronella. The song has a bouncy Caribbean jazz feel to it and of course offered a prominent solo by Andre, known for his prolific jazz compositions. The artiste’s other contribution was Fix it on Monday, a catchy melody on a dub groove.


The ‘night of the stars’ included in the musical stratosphere Eyan Alleyne, with the performance of U Came from his new album Relatively Unknown which was launched at April’s Cool Jazz. In true ‘Hog It’ style, he delivered the vocal alternative rock tune with all the stage savvy that we have grown accustomed to seeing from him and of course in keeping with the trend of the night – that titillating live wire solo that makes your hair stand on end.

The evening’s indulgences included an offering of a re-make of Vern Best’s Boom Byeh from James Lovell’s CD - First Born. This featured an Afro-Caribbean groove with the bonus of a powerful and ‘wicked’ solo by James that had some leaping to their feet with instantaneous applause.
Kirk Layne on keyboards and Gregory Hunte on bass also delighted patrons with their solos

Chris Harper took time out from his administrative duties to remind us that apart from producing the popular Cool Jazz series he is first and foremost a musician!

Simply put, Paula Hinds wowed the crowd with her rendition of Barbara Streisand’s, The Way We Were! She literally took the song down a trail that had enchanting musical surprises for the listeners.
