The Great Ladies of Jazz
London's top vocalist Elisa Caleb celebrates the giants of jazz singing, from Billie to Ella, from Peggy Lee to Julie London, from Nina to Sarah Vaughan. A night of swinging jazz and classic songs accompanied by the Alex Webb trio.
“Elisa Caleb sings jazz classics in a light and airy Brazilian style and her husband’s songs as though they were already classics. Anyone who bought a bit of early Ella Fitzgerald Decca vinyl at a gig in the mid-forties, would have been pleased, I’m sure. There is just a sparkling hint of the First Lady of Song in Elisa Caleb. I’ve been listening to the star ever since.” SIR PETER STOTHARD, THE TIMES
“Silken-voiced jazz goddess. The light but a sure touch of this Filipino-Bajan babe stirs up a quiet storm of a superior kind.” DAILY MIRROR
“A charming vocal album by a singer with a gospel background and deep appreciation of the jazz greats…this is an impressive debut.” PETER BACON
“Elisa’s voice is strong and clear, poised and sophisticated.” THE VORTEX
“Ella-esque – a fine young singer.” TIMEOUT
