Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra – Jazz Power & Soul feat
März 9 @ 20:00
special guests: René Marie and Akiko Tsuruga
Let’s swing: Das Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra ist einer der legendärsten Klangkörper der Szene. Gemeinsam mit der amerikanischen Jazz-Sängerin René Marie und der Soul-Jazz-Musikerin Akiko Tsuruga bringt es kraftvollen und beseelten Jazz auf die Bühne des Grazer Orpheum: Jazz power & soul!
The debut of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra performing with the fantastic vocalist, René Marie as special guest, is a program that means excitement!
John Clayton and René Marie are writing music for a program created especially for this tour! René Marie is known for her unusually expressive voice. She whispers, pleads, demands, can be sweet, gritty, very naughty, instantly shifting from one mood to the next. Ms. Marie has received two Grammy nominations and performed among others with Mulgrew Miller, Chris Potter, and Robert Hurst.
How often can you hear a woman tame a 19-piece jazz orchestra with a B-3 organ?? Not often! Akiko Tsuruga, who hails from Japan, will also guest with the CHJO, and if you haven’t heard her live, now is the time to discover this amazing jazz artist!
