REVIEW OF THE ROARING FORTIES NEW ALBUM:
There Ain't Nobody Here But us Chickens

NUMMBER 6 IN THE IRISH ALBUM CHARTS


BY COLM O'HARE

HI OCTANE CORK SWING - JAZZ
"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing" This lot certainly have that swing, in spades, Inspired by the jump / swing era of the 40s (Louis Prima, Louis Jordan etc) and updated to a sound more reminiscent of a style popularised in the early 80s by Joe Jackson and his Jump'n Jive Album, The Roaring Forties blaze through a set of Jazz standards and a couple of originals with equal parts technical chops and sheer joyous enthusiasm.


Vocalist George Patterson leads the band through lively and superbly performed versions of familiar numbers such as 'under my skin', 'That old black Magic' , 'Lady is a tramp', Route 66 and the Gorgeous Ray Charles ballad 'You don't know me'.

The playing and arrangements are impeccable,
.

OUR LAST LETTER

Hi George,
Many,many thanks for playing at my birthday party on August 16th in Glandore. You and the band put the icing on the cake.... The guests,as you may remember, enjoyed the performance and danced like nobody was watching!!! I think Paddy Sherlock got a great buzz out of playing with you and it was all great. You are an absolutely fantastic band and I hope you and the other members will accept this as a big bouquet.
Thanks again.
Aileen Finucane.
