Recently we discovered Vaughan St. Jazz, a monthly (1st Thursday of the month) event at Mostyn in Llandudno. This month was Matt Owens, performing on double bass along with John Ellis (keyboard), Neil Yates (trumpet), Sam Draper (drums), and Ríoghnach Connolly (vocals and flute). One of my favorite songs of the night was “The Aviators’ Ball,” the title track from Owens’ album:
I also adored Ríoghnach‘s vocals — her voice is captivating, and the last song of the night really caught my attention:
All in all a fabulous show, and I’ll definitely be back to see what other artists Vaughan St. Jazz brings to town.
