For last year’s London Jazz Festival the Jazz Repertory Company presented its first-ever Swingin’ With Strings – a sell-out success that has inspired us to make a date with strings an annual affair. For this year’s offering, we feature an evening of Bossa Nova, performing music from Antonio Carlos Jobim with Frank Sinatra, Doris Day’s Latin for Lovers and music from Stan Getz’s wonderful 1962 album Focus featuring string arrangements by Eddie Sauter.
Iain Mackenzie returns in the role of Frank Sinatra and is joined by Brazilian guitarist/singer Gui Tavaras in the role of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Georgina Jackson sings Doris Day, Mark Crooks recreates Stan Getz and it’s all accompanied by a Big Band plus 22 sumptuous strings.
