The Cavell Leitch New Zealand Jazz & Blues Festival presents:

Celebrating Women In Jazz.
Mary Coughlan, Jennine Bailey and Naomi Ferguson.
The Press Jazz In the Dome.

In a magical evening singing the songs that made the voices legendary, three renowned vocalists, interpret the accomplishments of the great jazz singers:

Billie Holiday - Mary Coughlan;
Ella Fitzgerald - Jennine Bailey;
Etta James - Naomi Ferguson.

Jennine Bailey, regarded as one of New Zealand’s finest jazz vocalists, salutes Ella Fitzgerald’s impact on her own style and interprets classic jazz songs.

Naomi Ferguson’s sublime and expressive voice portrays love, betrayal and power as she pays tribute to Etta James’ career which has spanned the worlds of jazz and blues for over 50 years.

Mary Coughlan recorded an entire double album dedicated to her love of Billie Holiday, performing songs from it to sold out shows and enraptured audiences in Dublin, London and Christchurch.

Tom Rainey (keyboards), Andy Genge (guitar), Tim Sellars (drums), Gwyn Reynolds (saxophone), Mike Story (bass).
