Jazzing it up at lands end

DNA-3rd November ’06

Famed as probably the only musician in the country to have played with over ninety different live music ensembles globally, Colin D’Cruz is a familiar figure on the local live music scene. Rolling out a wide and impressive repertoire of instrumental nightclub standards with the other members of the band: Jimmy Divecha and Ashton Colaco on saxophones/flute, Beven Fonseca on piano/keyboards, Ian Enthiado on drums/percussion, the Bassman’s Band has a reputation that precedes it.

Beat the blues with some classic jazz and pop with Megan and the Bassman’s Band, Tuesdays to Sundays, 7.30pm to 11.30pm at the Atrium Lounge, Taj Lands End. Tuesday to thursday the band performs a wide range of instrumental nightclub standards as well as improvised funk jazz. On Friday and Saturday Australian singer Megan Perry sings pop and rock along with some of her own compositions. Listeners are enthralled by her sensational, soulful voice.

Jimmy Divecha, one of Mumbai’s jazz veterans, also plays popular tunes from different countries around the world. Ashton Colaco is one of the few young sax players in Mumbai. Beven Fonseca is sure to wrap audiences with his symphonic piano. Stirring up different beats on the drums is Ian Enthido, who has been playing professionally since the age of eight. After moving to Mumbai from the Middle East, Ian has performed as a member of backup bands for some of India’s greatest artistes.

You can now pep up your evenings at the Atrium Lounge at Taj Lands End with live jazz as you catch up with an old friend for a drink, for a business meeting or just relaxing over a cup of coffee.

Megan and the Bassman’s Band will love to keep you entertained.
