ABOUT THE EVENT

Vocalist Sarah Vaughan – ‘The Divine One’ – would have been 100 years old this year.  

To celebrate her incalculable influence on jazz singing, Lulu Pierre and pianist & arranger Alex Webb have joined forces to create a birthday tribute to ‘Sassy’, which covers her most famous songs and the ups and downs of a long career, through several generations of jazz and popular music. 

Joining Lulu is the remarkable bass-baritone Marvin Muoneke, bringing to life Sarah's famous vocal duets with Billy Eckstine, Joe Williams and others.

About our musicians

Continuing to make waves on the London jazz vocal scene, Lulu Pierre has proved herself to be a classic 'torch song' stylist with the sass of Nancy Wilson and the swing of Sarah Vaughan – and a knack for heartbreaking ballads.

Marvin Muoneke is based in the West Country where has pursues an active career as a singer songwriter and arranger.  He calls himself ‘The Young Man With The Old Soul’ – the title of his first album.

And leading our 7-piece band is pianist, arranger and songwriter Alex Webb with a long history of working with leading jazz vocalists. His songs have been recorded by Liane Carroll, China Moses, Jo Harrop, Allan Harris, Cherise, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and many others.
