Latest Festival Flyer update from Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival
Dubbed The First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald is arguably the finest female jazz vocalist of all time. Her extraordinary diction, timing, sense of swing and all round joie de vie made her one of the finestinterpreters of the songbooks of Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Irving Berlin, and George Gershwin. In this brand-new concert, acclaimed singer Rachel Lightbody pays tribute to the Queen of Jazz, performing classics including ‘Lush Life’, ‘Oh, Lady Be Good’ and ‘A-Tisket A-Tasket’.
Jazzwise Magazine praises “the fragile beauties of Lightbody’s voice”. Growing up in Chicago she was immersed in American music and, in this EJBF premiere, she will be backed Tom Gibbs, Brodie Jarvie, Conor Smith and Max Popp to celebrate Ella Fitzgerald’s incredible career. A tribute worthy of the great Ella – don’t miss it!
