THE MUSIC


Singer Barb Jungr 606 Club Chelsea Live Music Jazz Vocal Standards London UKSunday 12th 8:30pm £10
**PRE-VALENTINE'S NIGHT SPECIAL**
BARB JUNGR'S VALENTINE'S TREAT

Described as “Britain’s most gifted song stylist” and “one of Europe’s most intriguing and intelligent interpreters of the contemporary song” multi-award-winning vocalist Barb Jungr has successfully combined the intricacies of cabaret with the power of jazz to create a unique concept of popular music. It is little surprise that her recordings have been chosen “Album of the Year” by The Sunday Times, The Telegraph and The Washington Post. A regular performer these days in the US as well as the UK, Barb was the recipient of the “Best International Artist” in New York's “Backstage Awards for Excellence in Cabaret”, adding further to her burgeoning reputation as a singer whose unique voice and imaginative arrangements are internationally acclaimed. She's been a guest on Start The Week, Saturday Live and A Good Read on BBC Radio 4, appeared on BBC4 TV in a programme celebrating the lives of the great jazz divas, was profiled in the Independent on Sunday magazine and has written for The New Statesman. Tonight Barb will be performing songs she has chosen especially for this Valentine period, which she describes thus: “Come and scale the walls of love with us, with love songs from Cohen, Dylan, Brel, Joni Mitchell, Yip Harburg, Springsteen and more”. Just returned from another highly successful US and Australian tour, supporting Barb with her “Valentine Treat” tonight will be one of the UK’s finest jazz pianists Simon Wallace along with master bassist Davide Mantovani. One New York critic wrote of her show "Jungr is so supernatural at what she does that she transcends any sort of easy categorizing and rises to a uniquely higher plane. Part of the explanation is her ability to delve into songs and find things in them even their manufacturers hadn’t realized were there." Her astonishingly powerful performances wow audiences and critics alike: Time Out New York said her concerts are like religious experiences, naming her as one of the "ten things you need to see in your life”. It’s a very special gig this one.

"Élan, intelligence and passionate engagement: British chansonnier Barb Jungr brings all of it to her exemplary performance" World Music Report; “The only word to describe her dramatic interpretations is revelatory...I was open mouthed with astonishment.” New York Times; “genius” Time Out London; “One of the very best nightclub singers in the World” Time Out, New York; “A genuine jazz marvel" The Telegraph

VALENTINE'S NIGHT SPECIAL

emma smith
SAM WATTS-PIANO; CALUM GOURLAY-BASS; WILL GLASER-DRUMS
& MATT HERD, SAXOPHONE

(set menu only, £55 per person including glass of champagne or 1/2 bottle of wine; + £20 music charge)

Emma Smith is without question one of the leading Jazz vocalists of her generation, singing with a poise and facility that many singers twice her age would kill for. She is a third-generation Jazz musician, her grandfather Chris Smith Senior played trombone with Tubby Hayes, Oscar Peterson and Frank Sinatra, her father, trumpeter Chris Smith Jnr, writes and arranges for the likes of the BBC Big Band, and her mother, Simone, is an excellent sax player. So not too surprising then that she did her first gig when she was 14, started performing with NYJO when she was 15 and received a scholarship to the Purcell School of Music when she was 16 - the first ever jazz vocal student to do so. A graduate from the Royal Academy of Music, Emma has been featured at many if not most of London’s top jazz venues (including this one), though not as much recently as she took a time out from jazz to explore opportunities working in other genres. Emma is currently a member of vintage close harmony swing trio the Puppini Sisters, who have released five CD’s as well as working with artists such as Michael Bublé and appearing on numerous TV programmes both in the UK and abroad, from Alan Titchmarsh to Graham Norton and “Strictly Come Dancing”. In 2016, she was also chosen to be one of three hosts of BBC Radio Three's new jazz programme, "Jazz Now" (along with Soweto Kinch and Al Ryan), which further affirmed her stature in the jazz community. Her free range approach to the music and ease across a gamut of styles make her an exciting and characterful artist, though, that said, Emma has called Sinatra her biggest influence. A perfect fit therefore for Valentine’s Night, and we couldn’t be more pleased that Emma will be here with her impressive, hand-picked quintet, including Sam Watts-piano, Calum Gourlay-bass, Will Glaser-drums and rising star Matt Herd on sax. Our chef, Nadene, has produced a special menu for this special night, to give the occasion just that extra bit of flair. Reservations are required and we would suggest you make yours soon!
