ELLA FITZGERALD

With Anna Davel & Sima Mashazi

The First Lady of Song is still widely remembered every day through her prolific discography that brings joy to millions of jazz fans all over the world. She is widely acclaimed as one of the best female singers in history with a timeless repertoire.

SAMA winner Anna Davel and the delightful Sima Mashazi (recently starring in Miriam Makeba: the musical) are fantastic in this swinging tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, presenting the timeless songs that she made her own, including “I got Rhythm”, “Ain’t got that swing”, “Can’t take that away from me”, “Cheek to Cheek”, and “Summertime.”

ESSENCE OF SPRING

With Ibrahim Khalil Shihab & Ramon Alexander

Ibrahim Khalil Shihab (formerly known as Chris Schilder) is known for his role in the popular SA band Pacific Express. He is especially known as the composer of hit songs “Give a little love”, “Angel of love” and “I hear Music”. 50 Years after the release of his first album, Spring, Shihab released his second album “Essence of Spring”. Fans can look forward to hearing old favourites, new arrangements of his hit songs, brand new compositions as well as a fantastic piano solo by the pianist himself.  Shihab is a Cape legend and deserves full concert halls.  He will be seen at Woordfees and the Cape Town Jazz Festival in 2019.
