Remembering Blossom Dearie
Zoe Francis (voice), Jim Mullen (guitar), Barry Green (piano) & Mick Hutton (d bass)
Zoe Francis is “a singer to listen out for. She communicates a love and understanding of classic American song with the lightest of touches. A classy set.” – The Guardian.
Tonight she weaves new magic and wit into the repertoire of Blossom Dearie, the legendary 1950’s and 60’s American pianist/singer who was a well-loved regular at Ronnie Scott’s, where Zoe also sold out earlier this year. Zoe’s harmonic knowledge, immaculate articulation, and ‘grip’ on time – an absolute essential for jazz musicians – wins her the admiration of her three brilliant colleagues, who are all heavyweight names on the British jazz scene.
