Fiona's Comments

Okay, now, this was pretty. The interaction between piano and guitar is absolutely delightful, and the way McAllistair lets her voice float just above it all is a very satisfying result. Props to Gray on bass for the way he sticks to the background yet remained a formidable voice in the ensemble; it got to where my ear was avidly searching his bass out. Very nice.

About the Album

'Borneo' is an original jazz track by vocalist and composer Lee McAllistair that evocatively describes the lush tropical landscape of the jungles of Borneo. Written after a long boat trip on a jungle river, the tune lilts gently between 5/4 and 3/4, featuring Mike Simeon Ferguson on piano, Mike Bevan on guitar and Lyndon Gray on bass.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
