Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

The Wonder of Orla Murphy.

Jazz vocalist Orla Murphy, with her trio, will be performing a magical evening of Stevie Wonder hits on Sunday 24 June at Square Chapel, Halifax.
She will be performing a set of new jazz arrangements of songs selected from his works of the 1970s, which many regard as his ‘classic’ period.  Orla’s interpretations stay true to the essence of the originals, so expect to hear well known hits such as ‘All I Do’ and ‘Another Star’.
Orla’s rich voice is perfectly suited to Stevie Wonder’s magical style, crossing the boundaries between jazz and soul effortlessly.  Orla’s distinctive, rich sound has often been compared to the great vocalists Nina Simone, Cleo Laine and Diana Krall.
Sunday 24 June, 7.30pm, Tickets£11 & £9 concessions, Box Office: 01422 349422,www.squarechapel.co.uk
