Clare Teal & Her Big Mini Big Band: Swing's The Thing

Mon 1 January 0001 - Sat 30 June 2018
Victoria Hall

One of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song, award-winning vocalist Clare Teal (BBC Radio 2) – along with her excellent musicians – effortlessly traverses a rich landscape of timeless material.

From grand masters of the Great American Song Book (Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hart) to the witty and urbane stylists of the 50s and 60s (Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh and Dave Brubeck), with a nod to contemporary writers and originals too.

The ensemble, packed with fantastic top flight jazz players, demonstrates the thrill and power of the big band age and gives a great backdrop for Clare to perform her eclectic songbook of intimate ballads, roaring blues, sophisticated swing and fiery Latin tunes.

With arrangements by world renowned trumpeter/composer Guy Barker and jazz pianist extraordinaire Jason Rebello, songs include Cry Me a River, What Is This Thing Called LoveIt Don’t Mean a Thing if It Ain’t Got That Swing and There’ll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight.
