Songs from the Golden Age of Swing

April 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£21 – £35

Music from Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat ‘King’ Cole and more

The 30-piece Down for the Count Orchestra returns to West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge, for another joyful celebration of swing music as they perform Songs from the Golden Age of Swing.

Expect to hear the music of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Peggy Lee and many more brought back to life by some of the UK’s top jazz musicians and arrangers. The orchestra preserve and protect the musical heritage of these great artists – but this is no mere nostalgia trip, as Down for the Count perform each song in their own unmistakeable style, breathing new life into the best vintage music

You’ll hear recreations of hits such as Come Rain or Come Shine (Arlen & Mercer/Judy Garland), You Make Me Feel So Young (Myrow & Gordon/Frank Sinatra), All The Things You Are (Kern & Hammerstein/Ella Fitzgerald) alongside original arrangements of jazz standards written by the orchestra’s principal conductor Mike Paul-Smith.
