Brighton Jazz Mafia with Sam Carelse
Formed from the of the Brighton Jazz community, Brighton Jazz Mafia is a supercharged all-star big band who play homage to the greats of the big band era... Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Buddy Rich etc, as well as their own original compositions and contemporary writers.
For this special event they will be joined by vocalist Sam Carelse.
Sam has performed hundreds of shows, in venues such as The Grand, Brighton Pavilion and Brighton Dome, and at some of the UK’s most prestigious festivals including Love Supreme Jazz Festival and Brighton Fringe and Ronnie Scotts. She credits much of her sound to time spent listening to the greats, drawing particular inspiration from Anita O’Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Annie Ross.
“The singer, one Sam Carelse, was extraordinary... This, I thought, is the kind of jazz I can live with.” - Nicholas Lezard, The New Statesman
