Louise Clare Marshall
– the music of Sergio Mendes

Piano Smithfield, Long Lane, Barbican, London

Louise Clare Marshall, singing star of the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, after sold out concerts in the London Jazz Festival, and a performance in our 2022 Jazz Divas series, arrives at Piano Smithfield for a blockbuster evening of intense latin foot tapping, body swaying music.

Whether performing on tour with BBC’s Jools Holland or Roxy Music, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin’s American Songbook, Louise’s sonic skills span across genres: Jazz, Pop, R&B, Electronic, Classical or Gospel music. And all the while, her voice resonates, crackles, pops and burns as a phoenix rises from the flame.

In this Piano Smithfield  concert Louise gives voice to the producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Sergio Mendes whose influence on the music industry has spanned five decades and continues to evolve through new collaborations and mediums.
