Jazz hands at the ready : it’s International Jazz Day
Issued on: Modified:
From Paris to Pyongyang, countries all around the world are celebrating jazz in all its forms, from the experimental to the swingin’ to smooth soulful lounge styles. In honour of the event we’re welcoming to the show Kellylee Evans, the Canadian singing sensation who’s gained renown with her Nina Simone renditions. Now she’s bringing us hip-hop infused jazz on her latest album “I Remember When” – even managing to slip a little Eminem into the mix!
Also on the show: Femi Kuti heads back out on the road, we pay tribute to the 91 year old lady who revived Paris’s jazz scene in the 1980s, and introduce you to a Moroccan jazz songstress.
