From swing to sublime ballads, Clare Teal’s Mini Big Band concerts are renowned across the country for their energetic exuberance.
Backed by a spectacular band of first rate musicians, award-winning jazz singer and BBC Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal provides an evening of toe tapping big band songs which appeal to all and have the audience dancing in the aisles.
The rich, jazz infused repertoire explores timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years, and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today plus Clare’s own original compositions.
The eclectic song list, with music from Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Tim Rice to Sting, and honouring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson and Peggy Lee, will include a selection of material from her latest album Twelve O’Clock Tales.
As one of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song and much loved performers, Clare and her Mini Big Band promise a sparkling night of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by the very best.
