124 Oxford Road, M13 9RD Manchester, United Kingdom
Mike Hall director
Christian Garrick violin
Tina May voice
Our French Connections odyssey continues when the RNCM Big Band conjures up a hot night in Paris with a couple of special guests who are no strangers to our Big Band audience. Tina May will pay tribute to Édith Piaf and has a couple of other surprises up her sleeve, including a lovely version of Autumn Leaves arranged by Colin Towns (which she will sing in French).
Chris Garrick will be joining RNCM guitarist James Girling to play a couple of Hot Club de France tunes and the Band will also play some songs from the album A Hot Night in Paris by the Phil Collins Big Band. Throw in April in Paris and the odd Michel Legrand classic and you get the picture…
