They played for almost two hours, including an intermission.
The orchestra went solo for the first song, “Cuban Overture,” by Gershwin. Then Andrew and his band took the stage for several romantic songs by the likes of Johnny Mercer and Cole Porter.
After the intermission, Andrew returned to the standards catalog for more love songs by the likes of Dean Martin and Carmichael/Parish. He closed the show with a medley of Marvin Hamlisch tunes.
I have to single out Swingerhead band member Bobby Brennan for his bass solo. I’m a fan of the upright bass, to begin with, but he got seriously funky during his solo.
It was a lovely concert and I’d like to thank the Orlando Philharmonic for inviting us to see it.
