From Ella to Peggy, the finest female jazz singers of the swing era had one thing in common – a weakness for the wrong men. In her exploration of 1950s femininity, award winning jazz singer, Kate Fuller, shines a light on the passionate, tumultuous and heartbreakingly true love stories that led to the most memorable jazz performances of our time.
Joining Kate are The Boys Club band, Alana Dawes on double bass and Kyrie Anderson on percussion, as they utilise their uniquely sparse, rhythmic instrumentation to recreate classic swing era tunes with no space for lyrical misinterpretation.
This classy show presents their just released album I Like Men which explores classic swing jazz songs of the 1950s and 60s. A real treat for jazz lovers.
