Jazz Voice

Duration:
2 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 15 November 2013

London's annual autumn jazz jamboree starts with its traditional opening-night gala. Jazz Voice is a celebration of some of the great songs of the past ten decades, sung by some of the great voices of today. Among this year's line-up are American premier jazz singer Jane Monheit; jazz a cappella group Vive; Yorkshire-born singer and broadcaster Clare Teal; Kansas-born singer-songwriter Krystle Warren; London's own jazz, funk and soul vocalist Annabel Williams; classically-trained British soul singer Omar, aka Omar Lye-Fook MBE; and Zimbabwe-born singer, arranger and conductor Eska. Arrangements by Guy Barker, who also conducts the London Jazz Festival Orchestra.

The programme of songs draws on major anniversaries, birthdays and milestones that link the decades stretching back from 2013.
