Swingin’ with Strings featuring Claire Martin
LONDON Cadogan Hall

An evening of superb historical musical recreations from the Jazz Repertory Company – their biggest production with 22 string players and a harpist added to a 17-piece big band.
Claire Martin performs music from Billie Holiday’s 1958 album Lady in Satin alongside new orchestral arrangements of her favourite songs from her latest album. There’s also Pete Long performing Artie Shaw’s Concerto for Clarinet, Ryan Quigley recreating Clifford Brown with Strings and Sammy Maine performing music from the most famous of all instrumental jazz albums to feature violins – Charlie Parker with Strings.
