Broadway glamour with a honeyed jazz soul.
When the worlds of jazz and classical collide, they create dazzling sparks. America’s greatest composer for popular love ballads and Broadway charm is given an intoxicating new life with two of the hottest voices in the world of jazz today.
Bursting onto the UK mainstage in 2013, Laura Mvula is described as the Nina Simone of her generation, recognised for her molasses-rich soulful vocal and beautiful harmonies. Blessed with a honeyed baritone voice, José James is a sensation in the modern jazz scene. Together with conductor and creator Troy Miller, their astonishing performance of Gershwin Reimagined with WASO makes for a completely unmissable event.
Troy Miller’s re-imagining of Gershwin’s song book is done with an unbridled energy and deep respect, showcasing the exquisite melodies of the classics such as Embraceable You, Summertime (Porgy and Bess), I Got Rhythm and lots more.
