The Jazz Song Uncovered

Jazz vocalist Louise Gibbs presents The Jazz Song Uncovered. In an intimate duo setting with pianist Steve Melling, the programme marks 100 years of jazz song from its blues roots in Bessie Smith, the American Songbook of Billie, Ella, and Sarah Vaughan, the improvisational bebop of Betty Carter, the liberation soul of Abbey Lincoln, the Brazilian contribution of Tania Maria, to the contemporary jazz fusion of Esperanza Spalding and modern British jazz vocalists.
