Cathrine Summers’ show, Great Ladies of Jazz, will be an evening of fine music and fine dining, Kickback and take a load off as popular jazz songstress, Cathrine Summers, brings you Great Ladies of Jazz, a show with swinging classics paying homage to the great singers that have shaped and inspired jazz music of today.
Summers is a sell-out artist at Perth’s International Fringe World Festival 2015, 2016 and 2017 plus many high profile concerts, events and functions throughout WA. Together with her quartet, Cathrine will present a host of toe-tapping favourites from the classic ladies of jazz such as Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Julie London through to the velvety, playful and emotive iconic songs of jazz chanteuses Peggy Lee, Edith Piaf and Doris Day.
Summers is having a huge impact on the jazz scene with her husky, honeyed yet powerful voice coupled with an infectious humour and natural playful charisma that sets her apart. It’s hard not to compare Summers to vocalists such as Nancy Wilson, Diana Krall or Carmen McRae with her wide vocal range and versatile style. She has a confidence in her delivery that transcends genres and eras.
Joining Cathrine on stage are some of Perth’s best musicians; on Piano, Brodie Stewart, on Double Bass, Zac Grafton and on Drums, Pete Evans.
Come down and enjoy this delightful evening as Cathrine weaves historic stories around effortlessly delivered well-known classics of love, fun and adventure, heartbreak, loss and remorse. You’ll feel right there in the 30’s and 40’s when these great songs were written.
