Great Jazz Voices | Celebrating the Sarah Vaughan Centenary

 

Celebrating the Sarah Vaughan Centenary
With Lulu Pierre, Marvin Muoneke & the Alex Webb Quintet 

Sarah Vaughan – ‘the Divine One’ – would have been 100 years old this year.  To celebrate her incalculable influence on jazz singing, Lulu Pierre and pianist / arranger Alex Webb have joined forces to create a birthday tribute to ‘Sassy’ which covers her most famous songs and the ups and downs of a long career, through several generations of jazz and popular music.  Joining Lulu is the remarkable bass-baritone Marvin Muoneke, to bring to life the famous vocal duets with Billy Eckstine, Joe Williams and others.

Already making waves on the London jazz vocal scene, Lulu Pierre has proved herself to be a classic Torch Song stylist with the sass of Nancy Wilson and the swing of Sarah Vaughan – and a knack for heartbreaking ballads too.

Alex Webb is a pianist, arranger and songwriter with a long history of working with leading jazz vocalists; his songs have been recorded by Liane Carroll, China Moses, Jo Harrop, Allan Harris, Cherise, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and many others. 

Marvin Muoneke is based in the West Country where he pursues an active career as a singer songwriter and arranger.  He calls himself ‘The Young Man With The Old Soul’ – the title of his first album.

Doors open from 7pm allowing you plenty of time to settle in, and enjoy some delicious food and drinks before the show starts at 8pm.
