LINDA PURL & THE DIVA JAZZ ORCHESTRA
MUSICAL DIRECTOR: TEDD FIRTH
Singing the Great Ladies of the Glamorous Nightclub Era
Straight from London’s Crazy Coqs, New York’s Feinstein’s and Tokyo’s Swing Hall, Midnight Caravan salutes the great women singing stars of the 1940s and ’50s–from Ella Fitzgerald to Judy Garland to Rosemary Clooney–as they reign over the swanky, sexy supper clubs of the era. From sultry ballads to hot latin jazz arrangements of Broadway tunes, the show features classic standards like My Romance, Shall We Dance and Caravan, and conjures a nighttime world where the surroundings are posh, the drinks keep ﬂowing and nobody goes to bed before three.
“Purl cut(s) loose with all the authority of a seasoned jazz vocalist…she is mesmerizing.” Clive Davis, London Times
“Linda Purl melts as softly as Judy Garland.” Stephen Holden, New York Times
“Superb intonation, phrasing and melodic purity. Show stoppers as never heard before. A highly satisfying evening.” Tom Vallance, Classical Source, London
