Elaine Delmar’s Jazz Heart

Elaine Delmar - London Jazz Festival 2023 - JBGB Events _ Jazz in London

Piano Smithfield, Long Lane, Barbican, London 

Elaine Delmar continues to be the most outstanding jazz singer- with the heart, voice, looks and personality that have captivated world-wide audiences.

This welcome return to Piano Smithfield, following her sold- out venue debut Gershwin and Porter concert, focuses on Elaine’s Jazz Heart and showcases, with her outstanding quartet, her mastery of improvisation and superb musicality, embracing her phenomenal vocal range, that have wowed audiences world-wide for many years.

Elaine is equally at home, whether entertaining a concert audience, or performing in the more intimate cabaret/small theatre settings.

Her concerts have sold out, not only here at Piano Smithfield, but also at London’s Crazy Coqs, The Other Palace, The Pheasantry, Pizza Express Dean Street and above all at Ronnie Scott’s. Tonight’s concert captures all the emotion and sheer pleasure of the most engaging songs from the jazz heart of this wonderful artist.

Elaine was awarded best vocalist in the 2013 Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

 For this appearance in the EFG London Jazz Festival, Elaine is accompanied by an outstanding jazz quartet. On guitar by the jazz legend that is Jim Mullen; at the piano by the lyrical swing of Barry Green; on double bass by British Jazz Awards Nominee Simon Thorpe and on drums by the evergreen Bobby Worth 

Here’s Elaine with the timeless classic  S’Wonderful.
