BBC Big Band

Multi award-winning jazz vocalist and radio presenter, Claire Martin OBE, joins the internationally acclaimed BBC Big Band for a unique celebration of the legendary leading ladies of the Big Band, including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee and their contemporaries.

Through a diverse repertoire arranged and curated by the BBC Big Band and Claire Martin, the concert celebrates the music of the 20th century’s most iconic vocalists, whose legacy and influence defines a classic era of jazz singing.

Enjoy the classic songs that made them stars, such as That Old Black Magic, I’ve Got The World on a String, Too Darn Hot and many more. Plus plenty of popular Big Band hits from the groups that the divas loved to work with, including Artie Shaw, Count Basie and Benny Goodman.

An evening of feel-good music inspired by the most glamorous women in jazz!

"World-class musicians … a brilliant musical force."
