Louisiana Shakers not at Clyde on 17 November 2013

FANS should note that The Louisiana Shakers will not be at their regular stand at the Clyde Hotel, Carlton next Sunday, 17 November 2013, but will be back in full swing the following Sunday, the 24th.

In the meantime, here’s a clip of The Shakers, with guest sit-in Bob Whetstone on trumpet and vocals, playing One Sweet Letter From You a few weeks ago – 3 November actually.

By the way, One Sweet Letter from You was co-written by that prolific composer Harry Warren. His co-composers were Lew Brown and Sidney Clare, and the song was first released in 1927 sung by Annette Hanshaw. And while we’re on this trivia trip, did you know that Harry Warren was born Salvatore Antonio Guaragna. His father changed the surname to Warren which sounds a bit like Guaragna when you pronounce it in the Italian way.

    It is with shock and great sadness that I report the passing of Graham Coyle, one of the piano masters of Australian jazz, on Sunday, 17 November, 2013 (yesterday ) in Cabrini hospital, Melbourne, after a short illness. Graham returned from a European tour just several weeks ago, and was playing with his exquisite taste and joyfulness until well into this year.
    He leaves his wife, Carol, children and grandchildren, to whom Wendy and I send our heartfelt condolences.
