Ella & I: Ella Fitzgerald Centennial Celebration Tribute: Svetlana & The Delancey Five
@ Blue Note Jazz Club – Shows @ 11:30AM & 1:30PM (Doors @ 10:30AM & 1PM)
SVETLANA & THE DELANCEY FIVE is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s served at a 21st-century speakeasy” (Allan Young, New York Music Daily). Led by Svetlana, the “outstanding vocalist and songwriter” (Will Frieldwald, Wall Street Journal), this band has a remarkable affinity for “making Hot Jazz sound cool!” (BlueMonkMoods).
“Prepare to swing and be moved!” (JazzLives) as Svetlana & The Delancey Five transports the audience to a carnival of sound, from soft introspection to an “exuberant, foot-stomping music combining swing and pop-singer/songwriter sensibilities” (WPIX11TV) fit for the 21st century! The band has headlined sold-out shows in premier venues and festivals across the US and the world, combining the charm of Svetlana’s sultry vocals, the excitement and power of a “little big band”, and the intoxicating improvisational aspects of a small jazz group!
The band’s record “Night at the Speakeasy” (produced by Guy Eckstine and featuring Wycliffe Gordon) was ranked among the “most added” on JazzWeek and CMJ Jazz Radio charts. It also received a 4-star rating from AllAboutJazz, and was among the Top 10 2016 jazz vocal releases on Classicalite.
Experience the “sweet and naughty” (JazzLives) magic in this special “Ella and I” Ella Fitzgerald Centennial Tribute Show, featuring beloved Ella’s classics as well as charismatic originals, and feel your pulse quicken and your heart thaw out from the daily grind!« Back to Events
