About This Event

The concert will start at the roots of jazz with its most influential figure, Louis Armstrong, as he was creating and shaping America’s new art form in the 20’s. It will progress through his big band era of the 30’s to his mature style and the famous vocal duets he created with America’s First Lady of Song, the fabulous Ella Fitzgerald.

Who better to present this in Australia than one of its premier jazz groups The Syncopators, with sell-out tribute concerts including Great American Songbook, Tribute to Bing Crosby and Best of British. They will team up with the vocal skills and musicality of Australia’s foremost Ella exponent, Yvette Johansson, to create a delightful program that is sure to be both entertaining and exhilarating.
