A trio of time-served, battle-hardened stalwarts of the Glasgow music scene, OK Amigos 3 is the latest iteration of the much vaunted OK Amigos collective. Stripped back to guitar, sax and percussion, they still manage to serve up a heady cocktail of musical styles, with influences ranging from Ry Cooder and Steely Dan to Steve Gadd and John Coltrane and the great singer songwriters of the 20th century. Combining a love of Blues, Jazz and Americana, underpinned with compelling and innovative swing and Latin rhythms, theirs is a unique and vibrant portfolio of songs and instrumentals. Self penned offerings speak of quirky characters, escapist dreams and the vagaries of the human condition, delivered through that sparse but carefully crafted guitar/sax medium, behind the rich, gravelly tones and intricate percussion of founder, John McNamara. The band also takes on a disparate selection of cover versions ranging from jazz and Latin standards through to the Beatles, Bob Dylan and beyond, all given the unique Amigos twist to inject dynamism, diversity and not a little levity, whilst always respecting their A-List source material. This is a band for the musical aficionado.
