Welcome to the home page of The Dan Mclean Hot Six’s swing album, featuring six of Canberra’s finest musicians and vocals by Hetty Kate. It’s a swingin’ smorgasbord of sweet sassy tunes made famous by Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and more, with some fun new songs plucked from the sequinned stages of the 1930s New York Cabaret Scene.
The album was recorded and mixed in July 2015 at HiHat Studio in Canberra by Greg Stott.. and the band are Dan Mclean (trumpet); Valdis Thomann (trombone); Greg Stott (guitar); Wayne Kelly (piano); James Luke (bass) and Mark Sutton (drums) with vocals by Hetty Kate.
You can listen online here, link through to check out Dan’s musical projects (he has a fantastic Big Band in Canberra and performs at many festivals and events), connect with us on social media, and buy a copy (only available as a hard-copy cd) though this site.
So keep on swingin’ and we hope you enjoy it!
