Val Wiseman presents Divas of Swing – her tribute to Anita O’Day, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. Val is joined by Brian Dee on piano, Len Skeat on bass and Eric Ford on drums.
Val said: “I’m delighted to be performing at this concert to raise funds to support the great work that the National Jazz Archive does in preserving the history of our music.”
Val is best known for her tribute to Billie Holiday, ‘Lady Sings the Blues’, which has been critically acclaimed since its first performance in 1987 at the Birmingham Jazz Festival, and successfully toured Europe and the UK ever since. Billie’s centenary in 2015 was celebrated with a live recording of the show at the Festival and the album has just been released on Big Bear Records.
