Double bill

Ella Fitzgerald’s vocals are amongst the the finest interpretations of jazz music ever heard.

Strictly Smokin’ and vocalist Alice Grace showcase some of Ella’s finest material from an era when she collaborated with some of the most exciting big bands and arrangers: Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Strayhorn & Ellington, Marty Paich, Frank DeVol and more.

Music from some of her most iconic albums including “Ella Swings Brightly with Nelson”, “Whisper Not” and “Ella at Dukes Place” will feature along with music from her iconic series of songbook albums.


We’re excited to be sharing the evening with the Dean Stockdale trio as part of Newcastle Jazz Festival.

"Stan Kenton bombastically proclaimed "This is an Orchestra!" Michael Lamb would be justified in doing the same!"

Lance Liddle | Be Bop Spoken Here

"You guys sound great!"

Chris Walden | Capitol Studios

"Without doubt, the very best band operating in the north of england."
