This summer I had the great opportunity of singing twenty-eight nights onboard the Symphony of the Seas, making music with some very talented jazz cats while floating on the Mediterranean!
The first two weeks I had the pleasure to work with Manny Kellough on drums! You have heard this talented drummer. He toured and recorded extensively with Billy Preston and is the featured drummer on all of Billy's hits; Nothing From Nothin, Will It Go Round In Circles, That's The Way God Planned It and You Are So Beautiful to name a few.
Our pianist was the very swingin' Paul O'Dey from New York. We really connected musically and it made each night a special adventure! Keeping us all together was our mighty fine bassist Chris Leward from Brooklyn.
My Baby Just Cares For Me
Then for the next two weeks Jeff Neal joined us on drums.
Man, can this guy swing... and he's a lefty too!
My husband Jaye joined me for the last two weeks on the cruise and captured some live moments. These videos feature Jeff on drums.
