BANU GIBSON & THE NEW ORLEANS TRAD JAZZ CAMP ALL-STARS
Thu June 23 @ 8:00 pm
Dubbed the “First Lady of the Bayou,” legendary swinging jazz singer, Banu Gibson (pronounced bah-new) is one of the few vocalists of her generation to maintain exclusive loyalty to songs of the 1920s, ’30s, and ’40s. Rather than mimic singers of the past, she mixes fresh renditions of Tin Pan Alley standards and jazz classics by Gershwin, Ellington, Berlin, Carmichael, Waller, Porter, et al. A powerful force on stage as well as on her recordings on the Swing Out label, her enthusiasm and showmanship are highlighted by her wide range and versatility.
