Jessie Gordon is Ruining Your Night

By Julie Petersen on 22 Feb 2018

A delightful night of jazz, blues and original songs from Jessie Gordon and band in the warm and welcoming environs of The Ellington Jazz Club.

I felt like a cherished friend as I sat in the audience while Gordon shared intimate moments of her musical journey through life and the songs that defined those moments for her.

Songs that showcased the exceptional range of her vocal talents and with her charming and confident stage presence delighted everyone in the audience.

The band, Mark, Michael, Karl and Jon are all exceptional individual musicians and the instrumental interludes were a truly brilliant highlight of the evening.

This was such a polished, professional and well balanced show.

The amazing finale of the performance, the best loved song of all time Hallelujah, was an absolutely perfect choice.

There is good and there is great – Jessie Gordon and band are definitely the latter.
