Scarlet Halton  – Speak Love

JBGB Jazz Singers 2022

Thursday February 17

Scarlet Halton
– Speak Love

Piano Smithfield, Long Lane, Barbican, London

Scarlet Halton arrives at Piano Smithfield to celebrate the music of the Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald. For this concert Scarlet will be focussing on Ella's iconic duo records with virtuoso guitarist Joe Pass

And in that role she will be accompanied on guitar by maestro Nick Fitch, no stranger to Piano Smithfield and shortly to feature in our forthcoming Two-Guitars Festival in March.

Expect smoky sultry ballads such as "At Last" and "Georgia On My Mind" and upbeat Broadway classics like Cole Porter’s  "Love for Sale" – originally banned from the airwaves because of its provocative lyrics, but now recognised as a great jazz classic.

Having grown up in a musical family, Scarlet is pursuing a career in music. Currently studying at the Guildhall School of Music, she has a focus not only on performing, where her wide vocal range gives her singing a strong personality,  but also building a reputation as a creative and imaginative composer.

Enjoy Scarlet’s performance, in the studio, of Frank Lerner’s great song from My Fair Lady “On The Street Where You Live”
