Drawing on influences as diverse as Fats Waller, Count Basie, Oscar Peterson and Gene Harris, Webster serves up a smorgasbord of styles unified by one characteristic: irresistible danceability. Blues Till Dawn is a collection of slow, bluesy jazz tracks influenced by the sultry atmosphere of a late night dancing event in the lindy hop/blues scene.
Here's what dancers are saying about Gordon Webster:
"...an extremely rare combination of eloquence, passion, and accessibility - like a shot of something pure that goes straight to the head and heart."
--Elizabeth Miller, dance instructor, event promoter
"Gordon plays every note like it's the last note he's going to play in his entire life."
--Steven Mitchell, worldwide lindy hop instructor
"Gord's very well musically educated, and it's evident. However, it's HOW he plays that makes the biggest impact - his soul wells up in his hands and either flows or explodes out through his fingers and into the keys. He's incredibly moving. Incredibly."
--Michelle Long, dancer
