And just like Chet, I tend to fall in love too easily

– Laufey

Charlie Moon, pictured, son of jazz singer Mia Parsons and Irish jazz guitar great Nigel Mooney and a formidable soft singer and guitarist already in his own right - here with a very fine version of Hoagy Carmichael/Mitchell Parish classic 'Stardust' now streaming.

The zeitgeist for ''soft singing'' is perfect as there's an appetite for the style at the moment in the wake of the all conquering Laufey. Moon could also be seen to emerge in the lineage up to a point of swinging Irish jazz singer Cormac Kenevey.

It's a marvellous night for a Moon dance

The pedigree Hoagy treatment is drawn from Charlie Moon Sings & Plays to be launched next week accompanied by double bassist Barry Donohue at South Great George's Street hostelry O'Regans on Tuesday night.

An alumnus of leading Irish jazz tertiary level music college Newpark, Moon's guitar playing is Barney Kessel (1923-2004) influenced. On the Irishman's own Dot Time Records release Patchwork (2022) fellow Dubliner Donohue who joins him for the launch also contributed. Gig and ticketing details for Tuesday night's launch - make for the basement Keg Room
