Jazz at Future Inns
Emma Harris~Private Event
Date: 5th December 2013
Emma Harris is a highly acclaimed Jazz singer and is gaining recognition on the UK Jazz scene for her fresh soulful renditions of Jazz Standards.
Her repertoire includes a diverse mix of songs from the sultry, smokey blues of Sarah Vaughn’s ‘Black Coffee’ to the high speed swing of Ellington’s ‘Take the A Train’. Emma’s captivating vocals are silky smooth and her Ella’esque’ style lifts age old standards into a whole new dimension demonstrating a rare ease and flair for improvisation.
The Victoria Klewin Quartet
Date: 12th December 2013
Victoria Klewin is a versatile young vocalist and songwriter who spent her formative years binging on jazz standards instead of alcopops. It’s proven to be time well spent as her delivery is emotive, playful and authentic, with a tone that is both sophisticated, sweet and gritty. Victoria draws heavily on the Great American Songbook but also revives classical pieces by the likes of Purcell and Handel to great effect. Most excitingly, her original material stands up to the rest with ease, truly setting her apart from the crowd. She is thrilled to be joined by some of Bristol’s finest- Jim Blomfield (piano), Greg Cordez (bass) and Eddie John (drums).
