Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Jazz Voice – Live Stream Announced - Taking the event to new and fresh audiences across the globe

Friday 10 November | Royal Festival Hall
(Press Release)
Serious are delighted to announce that Jazz Voice, the EFG London Jazz Festival’s signature opening night gala concert, will be live-streamed for the first time across YouTube and Facebook Live.
‘It would be difficult to imagine a more impressive curtain-raiser to the EFG London Jazz Festival than Jazz Voice – the vocal extravaganza features a typically adventurous mix of singers from the worlds of jazz, pop and soul.’ (the arts desk).
This year, in a ground-breaking partnership with The Space, the organisation working to help reach new audiences through digital technologies which is supported by the BBC and Arts Council England, Jazz Voice will be streamed on the two global social platforms, starting at 8.30pm on Friday 10 November.
 There will also be a short 5-7 minute interval during the stream, which will feature additional behind-the-scenes content on the music and the artists that Serious works with year-round.

A star-studded line up of vocalists including Seal, Liane Carroll, Mica Paris, Miles Mosley, Tony Momrelle and Vanessa Haynes – in collaboration with Guy Barker's 42-piece orchestra and host Jumoké Fashola will open the Festival in their typical spectacular style.

‘The whole thing was masterminded by trumpeter Guy Barker, who deserves a jazz OBE for seeing beyond vocalists' usual genres: his imaginative pairings changed your view of the singers and the songs.’ (★★★★☆ Guardian)

The Festival’s glittering opening-night gala is one concert that’s definitely not to be missed each year. Now we offer the opportunity for thousands more across the globe to join us online as we enjoy the 10th year celebrations of this very special event.
This show is part of the EFG Excellence Series.
