Festival Jazz Evening

The Annika Skoogh Jazz Quartet

8.00pm to 10.00pm

Fowey Parish Church, £15

Join us tonight as jazz vocalist Annika Skoogh pays tribute to the legendary American singer Anita O’Day. The band will also perform treasured and timeless jazz classics during the second set that will guarantee to delight and get everyone up and dancing. Anita O’Day, was described in The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings as ‘the toughest, most dramatic and most fiercely swinging of all jazz singers’. Her performance at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in America, was captured for posterity, in the evocative film Jazz on a Summer’s Day. Her performance was one of the most memorable jazz vocal performances ever captured on film. The UK’s best Oscar Peterson interpreter, pianist Craig Milverton, plus bassist Jim Rintoul and drummer Coach York will join Annika Skoogh tonight. Together they will recreate the music of Anita O’Day, performing classics such as Sweet Georgia Brown, Them There Eyes and Tea for Two and songs from the singer’s collaboration with Oscar Peterson. Another Festival Jazz evening not to be missed. Wine and soft drinks available.
