Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARK GIBSON & LEE GIBSON

Friday, May 05, 2017

Friday Night is Music Night

Tonight, BBC Radio 2 celebrates the legacy of Ella Fitzgerald at 20:00 with a recording of a live 2 hour concert at the Hackney Empire by the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Richard Balcombe. Featured singers are Clare Teal, Mica Paris, Louise Marshall and Emma Kershaw. The program also includes some new arrangements by Guy Barker.  
Currently available is a recording from last week's Cheltenham Jazz Festival where Guy Barker's Big Band joined forces with the BBC Concert Orchestra for 'Rhythm and Blues + Jazz = Soul'. 
Thank you Liz for the reminder.
Lance.
