If you scroll down to our posting of 20 July 2013, you can read about Stacey, Ken, Mark and Steve, and listen to a couple of songs they recorded in the PBGB Shed back in 2013. We were very chuffed with those recordings. Steve, Mark and Ken, who comprise the Steve Clark Trio, are arguably the very best jazz players in the Bega Valley, and well beyond.
So being able to record Stacey backed by that line up was very satisfying indeed.
Now we are very pleased to present another song by Stacey and the Steve Clark Trio.
Have a listen to Stacey and the boys playing Route 66 by clicking HERE
We are sure you will agree that this is a very fine rendition of the great song written by Bobby Troup in 1946. Route 66 was first recorded by Nat King Cole. Later covers include those by musicians as diverse as Chuck Berry, the Rolling Stones, Bing Crosby, Dr Feelgood, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Manhattan Transfer, The Strypes..............the list is unbelievable.
Anyway, now we have our own fabulous version to be proud of.
This recording is amongst the finest ever produced in the PBGB Shed. The standard of musicianship is eye watering.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Stacey, Steve, Mark and Ken for their fantastic contributions.
