Seonaid Aitken celebrates the songs of Ella Fitzgerald in her centenary year with The Groove Merchant Big Band. With special guest Sam West.
Ella Fitzgerald was the greatest vocalist the jazz world has ever heard. Her extraordinary diction, timing, sense of swing and all round joie de vie meant that her versions of hundreds of great songs were the definitive ones. The songbooks of Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Rogers and Hart, Irving Berlin, and George Gershwin had no finer interpreter. In today’s cluttered world, the beauty of hearing these great songs sung with the same clarity and freshness is an unalloyed pleasure, and so it is with Seonaid Aitken, the leading singer of her day, and the perfect one to celebrate Ella and the songs she made famous. Seonaid fronts the superstar young Big Band that’s turning all the critics heads, and introduces special guest, Sam West, to join her in celebrating Ella’s very special duets with Louis Armstrong. A stunning night of great tunes, great music, and inspiring performances!
