Elaine Delmar sings Porter & Gershwin

Jazz Divas 2019

Saturday March 9

Elaine Delmar sings Porter & Gershwin

at Pizza Express Live : Pheasantry

Returning for her second appearance in our Jazz Divas series, comes the evergreen Elaine Delmar. With a voice like velvet olive oil, combined with her captivating stage personality, Elaine continues to captivate world-wide audiences. Her remarkable jazz sensitivities allow her to sing with amazing flexibility around the beat, in a  manner reminiscent of Billie Holiday and her variations of tempo and accents bring back memories of Sarah Vaughan at her best. Add her original improvisations and empathy with her established trio of Barry Green – piano, Simon Thorpe – double bass and Bobby Worth- drums and you have a true jazz original, guaranteed to deliver audiences an evening of compelling enjoyment.

 

Among the multitude of good jazz singers in Britain today, there is not one who can surpass Elaine Delmar..."  — Dave Gelly, Observer
