Esther Bennett has rightly been described as one of the jazz scene’s most experienced, respected and widely loved vocalists, juxtaposing sensitivity with a sparky sense of humour. Her song delivery leaves audiences utterly compelled.
Scotland’s tenor saxophonist and composer, the late Duncan Lamont, has been described as the new Cole Porter, with a growing band of singers as varied as Natalie Cole, Elaine Page, Richard Rodney Bennett, Tina May and Norma Winstone who have all recorded and interpreted his compositions, proof positive of his song writing talents.
Esther Bennett had been working with Duncan Lamont, touring The Duncan Lamont Songbook at jazz venues and theatres around the UK, and now continues to do so alongside his son Duncan Lamont Jnr, celebrating the legacy of his illustrious father’s song writing career
Woodwind player Duncan Lamont Jnr has worked extensively in the West End, most notably in the orchestra for “Chicago”. He has backed many well-known singers including Amy Winehouse, Natalie Cole, Barry White and Johnny Mathis and worked for many years as part of Dame Shirley Bassey’s orchestra.
On 16th March we are pleased to welcome Duncan, Esther and the group to the Jazz Centre UK.
