Sara Dowling with the music of Ella Fitzgerald

Saturday 18th January

Ella Fitzgerald was an American jazz singer sometimes referred to as the First Lady of Song, Queen of Jazz, and Lady Ella. She was noted for her purity of tone, impeccable diction, phrasing, intonation, and a "horn-like" improvisational ability.

Singing the music of Ella Fitzgerald comes Sara Dowling, with piano and double bass accompanists, is now recognised as one of the U.K's leading jazz vocalists and has just been awarded “Best Vocalist” in the 2019 British Jazz Awards.

She is a regular performer at Ronnie Scotts and the 606 Club and enjoyed a sold out concert in her 2019 Jazz Divas Series at The Pheasantry singing the music of Judy Garland; a concert she will present on January 28th At The Crazy Coqs.

She is becoming known for her interpretations of classic ballads, leaving audiences spell bound, as well as the energy and vigour with which she tackles the up tempo standards from the American Song Book.

Her distinctive voice owes much to her Irish father and Lebanese mother, surrounded by the records of her father's jazz collection and the chant like voices of Lebanese singers. Sara's album From Shadows Into Light received a five star review from Jazz Journal.

“ Her voice has all the qualities that you find in the great singers " – Guy Barker
