Winter Garden - Floral Hall
Wednesday 22 August 2012
Back by popular demand, BBC Radio 2 star David Jacobs compères this concert
celebrating the very best sounds of the great swing era or “Our Kind of Music”.
This fabulous 16 piece band features players who between them have played with the likes of Sinatra, Sammy Davis and Ted Heath. They will be joined by singers Matthew Ford (star of the 2011 BBC Prom “Hooray for Hollywood”) and Eleanor Keenan (Syd Lawrence and Andy Ross). The programme will draw on the libraries of bands such as Ted Heath, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Stan Kenton plus the songs of Ella and Sinatra.
