About

This very swinging quintet is led by the incredibly versatile and talented Tina May who was breathtakingly exciting on the Swanage Festival main stage last year. Tonight her jazz soul is the guiding force and one glance at her line up tells you that this will be a very special evening. It's the first appearance at Lauderdale by British Jazz Award winner Karen Sharp who first worked with Tina when they were both with the Humphrey Lyttelton Band. Since then they have collaborated and recorded together extensively. Expect some straight ahead jazz and ...always some forgotten gems alongside standards - but swung and sung in Tina's inimitable style. Our programmer Brian Blain compares her appearance at Swanage to Anita O'Day's sensational contribution to that classic 1960 documentary Jazz On a Summer's Day and tell us that 'we could not start our Spring season in any better way'.
