Jazz has been reshaped lately by singers like Gregory Porter and Mario Biondi – stylists who blend jazz with a touch of soul and blues. At the Ventnor Arts Club, Laurie will take a similar approach to the songs of Burt Bacharach, Alan Jay Lerner, Stevie Wonder, Grover Washington, Billie Holida and many others.
Laurie will be accompanied on the 15th by the virtuoso pianist Alan Nicholls and supreme jazz bassist Pete Holder – the Giant Steps Duo.
Doors open at 20:00. The event is free for club members and just £4 for non members.
