Basement Discs hosted Jack Howard and the Nightbirds for their last in-store for 2009, and it was a terrific way to end the year.

Jack Howard and band showcased songs from their latest CD Lost Horizon as well performing several from previous albums. Included in the mix were If I Were A bird, Crescent Moon, Nightbird and My Lucky Day

I was most taken with the song Frankenstein. It had great lyrics written from the point of view of the misunderstood monster and was powerful and dark in tone.

The band today comprised Jack on trumpet, Jo Schornikow on piano, Jeremy Hopkins on drums, Barry Stockley on bass and Nicky Del Ray on guitar. They packed a punch sound wise, playing excellent Latino rhythms.

As usual check them out on their My Space page.
