Jazz in the Gardens

The upper lawn of the Jamaica Pegasus hotel wasalive with swinging sounds last week as keyboardist harold Davis led a six-man combo through a delightful jazz-reggae jaunt.

Joining Davis on the stand were fellow keyboardist Alex Martin-Blanken, bassist(electric) Dale Brown, drummer Junior "Bird" Bailey, Richie Cunningham on oongas and feaured player Ian Hurd on saxophone and flute.

the Jazz in the Gardens audience also welcomed newcomer jhanell Graham singing jazz standards like "Teach Me Tonight" and "Besame" and the thrilling Maria Myrie doing her customary range of jazz-pop vocals, with numbers like "Hey Mr. melody" and 'Mas Que Nada"

Jazz in the Gardens is a monthly engagement presented by the Pegasus, the next instalment, which is actually in October (31) will feature jazz vocal diva Karen Smith and Friends
