Words and Music...

As Heidrich Heine once said... "Where words leave off, music begins".  I'm not sure he was speaking directly about the recent NYJO Nottinghamshire Library tour, but his wise words seem to fit on this occasion.  

Hans Christian Andersen on the other hand seems rather more negative with his "Where words fail, music speaks".

I personally prefer "So many books, so little time" - Frank Zappa.  

Well, audiences certainly didn't have much time for reading at Worksop, Southwell and West Bridgford Libraries, as they were treated to a fine selection from the extensive tune library of NYJO1 and Combo.  From vocal blasts such as "Mr Bojangles" and "Wonderwall" to hard bopping "Red Door", classic swing such as "Beyond The Sea" and "On Broadway" to pop toe-tappers "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "What A Fool Believes".  

Rarely are you allowed to make this much noise in a library - thank you Jazz Steps for giving NYJO the opportunity!...

"Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence" - Robert Fripp
