We had a ball recently as Guest Entertainers on the newest ship in the PnO fleet, the amazing Pacific Eden. With 3 of the quartet having children under 3 at home, it was a week of uninterrupted sleep, some serious cabin-based practice, and great playing. The Sydney Jazz Collective headlined the beautiful Blue Room; entertaining a full house each night with a mix of music ranging from jazz to soul as well as some fun arrangements of songs by Bonnie Raitt, Sting, and Crowded House.
What a pleasure to play every night for a week with the same great musicians and a crowd that grew by the set!
Thanks to the Eden’s Entertainment Director VJ, and all of the Cruisers who raved at their friends and had us playing to a packed room every night!
Here’s a little sample of the trio playing in jazz-mode whilst singer Jo Fabro was busy taking requests from some of the ‘regulars’!
