Extract from liner notes, written by Anand Satyanand (former Governor General of NZ) and former parliamentarian, Graham Kelly:

Since its launch in 1954, Bart Howard’s “Fly Me To The Moon” has been part of the repertoire of many jazz greats, including Sinatra, Mathis, Vaughan and Tormé. For audience members this tune will now be unforgettable for another reason. At precisely 5:09pm on Sunday, 21 July, 2013, while this concert was being recorded, Wellington singer Simon Jones had launched into his stylish rendition when a 6.6 earthquake struck, heaving , shaking and, sadly, bringing proceedings to a complete halt. Is this a world first? A live jazz recording interrupted by an earthquake?

A month later the rerun was held, with music, instruments and equipment recovered, and again the room was packed with fans. This CD is the result – with a title picked to recall the original event, named after the Meehan-penned opening tune.

As wave after wave of this eclectic mix of eighteen talented musicians’ music swept over an enthusiastic audience, it reinforced just how fortunate we are to be part of the best live jazz in New Zealand.

Enjoy Rattledog!
