Comments on Nicholas Unwin's Jazz Style

On behalf of the audience who were at Histon British Legion on Sunday evening,may I thank the organisers for presenting a wonderful  selection of music from a bygone era,featuring the Nick Unwin Trio with guest singer Atila.  Programme included songs from the golden age of musicals, jazz standards,evergreen compositions from  Cole Porter,Johnny Mandel,Sammy Cahn-Jimmy Van Heusen, plus a sprinkling from the Sinatra Catalogue. A wonderful arrangement of  The Stylistics hit "You make me feel brand new" -was also a highlight. Again,many thanks -they don't write songs like these today. – December 2008

I am sure I speak on behalf of the audience who were at  the Leys School on Saturday evening  in thanking those who had  arranged another superb Concert by the Nick Unwin Trio. Unwin -who hails from Histon-treated us to the music of Jerome Kern,Oscar Peterson,Lennon and McCartney (including a  standout  version of  James Pearson's arrangement of "Lady Madonna"),plus a selection from "My Fair Lady", The Sylistics, and some jazz standards.  A throughly enjoyable evening,with songs from the past superbly arranged and played by these most accomplished musicians. – March 2011
