Aura Sounds Presents... 

Thursday January 12th

Sam Trump and a 20 Piece Wind Orchestra will be performing Nat King Cole’s 1958 record 'THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU' at Aura Sounds Sessions under the Jazz Record Art Collective. The night will also feature a showcase and live painting from visual artist David Anthony Geary.

“Nat "King" Cole and arranger Gordon Jenkins followed their hit album Love Is The Thing with The Very Thought Of You, foraging further into romantic and sensual bliss and creating the audio equivalent of a distillation of romantic ardor in a bottle. The sixteen ballads of The Very Thought Of You, each with their own euphoric tinge, include the title track "The Very Thought of You," "For All We Know," "Paradise," and "But Beautiful." Again orchestrated with the heavenly strings of the distinctive Gordon Jenkins, sympathetically backing the intimately expressive and supremely musical voice of the incomparable Nat "King" Cole, the result again stands among its era's finest, most stylistically defining recordings of popular music and continues to enchant listeners to this day.” 

Sam Trump will be on vocals backed by a Wind Orchestra: 
"I've always wanted to do a tribute show to Nat "King" Cole ever since I heard the album "The Very Thought Of You". Those lush strings that support Nat's profound timbre, carry the listener into to a realm of romance and bliss.
On Jan 12th, we will recreate this album in a way that has never been done before. Being a lifelong trumpet player and of the wind instrument family, I am excited to substitute all of the string sounds from the record, with a 20 piece wind orchestra, including flute, oboe, sax, bassoon, clarinet, french horn, trumpet, trombone, and tuba."

David Anthony Geary will be showcasing his art and doing a live painting during the show.
