EARL OKIN : Nothing To Do With Sex Whatsoever.

Edinburgh Festival

Earl Okin seems never to have stopped performing his urbane, faultlessly musical comedy shows in both mainstream and fringe venues, and this latest hour long entertainment is relaxed and assured. Blues, Jazz and Bossa Nova songs are interspersed with his own , including a take on 'My Way' about bad stage pianos.

His vocal imitations of trumpet and clarinet solos are both funny and soulful, and his extended introductions give him the air of a Dennis Nordern of 20th century popular music.

His guitar and keyboard playing are a joy. Long may he ramble!

Tony Patrick.
