COOL JAZZ Cool Jazz…let me take you on a journey into the heart of suburban, late night 50’s and 60’s jazz radio cafe culture. Imagine… live on air from the lounge of the Fontainebleau hotel in sunny miami the coolest, sweetest, smooth jazzy sound around. The stylish movers and shakers hit the bar in their hipster suits before they go to spend their money and try their luck with an evening at the casino. A gorgeous sexy blonde steps up to the mic to make an introduction for the next band as a couple, out on the town and dressed to impress.. take a seat to enjoy the show and a drink from the bar and perhaps something delicious to eat from the lounge restaurant. Meanwhile…A slick, rich and wealthy millionaire takes the elevator up to the penthouse to look out across the bay. He stands under the stars in the moonlight, listening to the band downstairs performing their breezy, smooth organ jazz and blues as he looks out across the bay. On the beach below, a young holiday couple, very much in love drink a cocktail and enjoy the warm sea wash across them. They stand and make their way back along the boardwalk towards the hotel. As they pass the glittering lights of the pool they hear the beautiful, hipster jazz drift through the air and they walk hand in hand to arrive just in time for the next show as the band hits the stage.This is a fun, light and easy piece of relaxing, jazzy nostalgia and vintage swing.
