Kingston Jazz Society: Members – “…….. With Vocal Refrain”
27 October 2015@8:00 pm - 10:30 pm£1
This year sees the centenary of the birth of two of the greatest singers associated with our music. Whether Frank Sinatra has a place in the jazz world has often been debated, but as someone who acknowledged the influence of Lester Young, to-night we’ll put aside that debate; while in Billie Holiday’s case, her jazz credentials have never been in question. So to-night is a ‘bring-your-own’ evening of recordings by Sinatra and ‘Lady Day’, and maybe versions by other musicians of the small number of superior songs they both wrote.
