The Louis and Ella Music Show

Dave Cottle & Sarah Meek

 

The show is based around the song duets Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong recorded on 3 Albums with the Oscar Peterson Quartet in the late 1950's,  along with a vast repertoire of solo songs they both recorded and performed. The show presents these iconic songs true to the original arrangements recorded with Oscar on the piano, Ray Brown (bass), Herb Ellis (Guitar), and Buddy Rich/Louis Belson sharing the drum chair.

Packed with the great songs of the Swing era from Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, George Gershwin such as They Can't Take That Away From Me, A Fine Romance, I Wont Dance, Let's Call The Whole Thing Off.  PLUS solo songs from Ella & Louis including Manhattan, My Funny Valentine, Love for Sale, Just One of Those Things, Hello Dolly and Wonderful World!

Sarah Meek brings a new youthful energy to jazz with her powerful and versatile delivery coupled with an engaging stage presence and wide musical knowledge that has found her Welsh, UK and international audiences. Jazz Singer Sarah hails from Cheshire and is now based in Cardiff after studiyng at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama

 

One of Wales' most experienced and versatile professional musicians, the show combines many talents of Dave Cottle playing Trumpet and Piano (yes, at the same time) and singing!

The concert will suit many events, Jazz Clubs, Festivals, Theatres, Church concerts, Wedding Receptions, Afternoon Teas / Dinner. 

A knockout show for Jazz enthusiasts and lovers of the great swing songs of the American songbook. The Show can work to suit budgets from a duo to the full 5 piece line up. Give Dave a call to discuss options.
