Galapagos Duck at the Bundaberg Jazz Club on Thursday evening 18th February 2016. The five musicians of “Galapagos Duck” brought fresh insights into the workings of a jazz group.
It was a wonderful evening full of excitement and new jazz twists to familiar standards like ‘Time After Time’, ‘Winelight’, ‘Blackbird’ plus some traditional jazz, some classical pieces and Will’s rousing piano boogie segment, all combined and interwoven with consummate skill.
We had double-drum duets by Willy Qua and Rodney Ford; a six-handed bass piece with sticks – or was it two sets of sticks? - hands, arms and bodies interwoven around one upright double bass. The steel drum added to the calypso numbers, as did Richard’s explanation of its use and construction.
The rapport, repartee and joshing and jestings of the tight-knit group won the admiration of the enthusiastic 125-strong audience. The evening was enhanced by the presence of our new Patron, Jack Dempsey, and a short pre-performance spot with vocalist Zoe Seitis and pianist Stuart Wadham.
