Swingin' With Strings 2
Debuts At London's Cadogan hall Saturday 19th June 2021 at 7:30pm
The Jazz Repertory Company’s second Swingin’ With Strings concert sees the return of Claire Martin OBE for the launch of her new album Songs and Stories – her first-time collaboration with Jazz Repertory Company regular Callum Au.
Besides being a highly accomplished trombonist Callum is fast making an international reputation as a musical arranger, orchestrator and bandleader. Taking a selection of much-loved standards (including Cole Porter’s I Concentrate on You and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Hello Young Lovers) he has created a musical setting for Claire redolent of past masters such as Nelson Riddle and Billy May whilst keeping his own unique style to the fore.
The combination of Claire’s wonderful singing, Callum’s delightful arrangements and the superb playing of the 50-piece orchestra promises another memorable evening of swinging musical magic.
