Friday 25th August at 7.30pm
A double bill night of Jazz greats
Billie Holiday and Bill Evans.
Following a sell out performance last year with Matt Baker, Tiana Young returns to our stage as special guest for this night to remember with the Rodric White Quintet.
Billie Holiday, legendary performer, Jazz musician & singer-songwriter, is one of the most influential singers. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered new genres of singing.
With her strong vocal delivery & incredible improvisations, Billie’s golden voice and imaginative music captures hearts. We’ll be swooned by her songs God Bless The Child, Don’t Explain, Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans, No Detour Ahead.
Jazz pianist and composer BILL EVANS
continues to influence music & Jazz, with much of his music considered ‘standards.’ Known for his highly nuanced touch, the clarity of the content and his chord voicing system, he recorded over 50 albums with 31 Grammy nominations.
His inescapable influence on the very sound of jazz piano has touched virtually everybody of prominence in the field, and he remains a monumental model for jazz piano. Of his many works, tonight we will hear Come Rain or Come Shine, All Of You, Dolphin Dance, Someday My Prince, Time Remembered…
