Alma Zygier ‘has a remarkable voice: dexterous, low and expressive’ (Good Weekend) and she wraps it around her American Songbook repertoire with all the feeling and maturity of a much older performer.
Pre war jazz ear classics by Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and Memphis Minnie are brought into the 21st century as Zygier and group of similarly minded hot young players. Tremendous fun, and the perfect marriage of nostalgia and youthful exuberance.
