Liane Carroll & Ian Shaw "Silly Silhouette: A New York Story - the Songs of Louis Rubin&

"Silly Silhouette: A New York Story - the Songs of Louis Rubin"  featuring: Liane Carroll and Ian Shaw with Alice Zawadzki, Brendan Reilly and Karl Charity with James McMillan (trumpet), Roger Carey (bass) and Russell Field (drums).

The songs in this show​ ​ooze​ ​the incurable​ ​romanticism​ of their composer Louis Rubin ​and​ ​the​ ​New​ ​York​ ​vibe​ ​transports​ ​you back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​era​ ​of​ ​the​ rhumba,​ ​lindy​ hop ​and​ ​the​ ​swing​ ​dance​ ​halls​ ​of​ ​America.

“​Silly​ ​Silhouette”,​ Rubin’s best known song, ​was​ ​performed​ ​on​ ​the​ ​American​ ​TV talent​ ​show​ ​“Songs​ ​for​ ​Sale”​ ​in​ ​1951​ ​by​ ​Rosemary​ ​Clooney​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Ray​ ​Block Orchestra,​ ​when​ ​Lou​is ​appeared​ ​as​ ​a​ ​double​ ​act with his wife Beatrice.

Louis​ ​Rubin​ ​was​ ​born​ ​1920​ ​in​ ​Brooklyn,​ ​New​ ​York,​ ​the​ ​son​ ​of​ ​Russian​ ​immigrants who ​lived​ ​in​ ​a​ ​tiny​ ​apartment​ ​with​ ​eight​ ​siblings.​ By​ ​the​ ​age​ ​of​ ​16​ ​he​ ​was​ ​writing​ ​songs and​ ​jingles​ ​and​ ​sending​ ​them​ ​to​ ​any​ ​publisher​ ​he​ ​could​ ​find.  He​ ​wrote​ ​more​ ​than​ ​200​ ​songs​, many ​during​ ​World​ ​War​ ​II​. He​ ​married​ ​the​ ​subject​ ​of​ ​his​ ​many​ ​love​ ​songs, Beatrice,​ ​in​ ​1941. A​ ​year later​ ​he​ ​was​ ​drafted​ ​into​ ​the​ ​US​ ​Army​ ​and​ ​was​ ​shipped​ ​to​ ​the​ ​UK,​ ​leaving​ ​behind​ ​a two​ ​month​ ​old​ ​baby to became ​a​ ​GI,  ​based​ ​at​ ​​ ​Warrington​ ​in​ ​north-​west​ ​England. After​ ​three​ ​years​ ​away​ ​from​ ​his​ ​family,​ ​he​ ​returned​ ​home​ ​with​ ​his​ ​passion​ ​for song writing​ ​undiminished. 

Rubin​ ​died​ ​in​ ​1984​ ​at​ ​the​ ​age​ ​of​ ​64.​ ​Thanks​ ​to​ ​his​ ​younger​ ​daughter​ ​Suzan,​ ​who inherited​ ​his​ ​original​ ​sheet​ ​music,​ ​his​ ​songs​ ​have​ ​been​ ​brought​ ​to​ ​life​ ​by​ ​some​ ​of Britain’s​ ​top​ ​jazz​ ​musicians.
