One of the Festival’s most popular visitors, violinist/ vocalist Lizzie Ball, returns with longtime collaborator, Ronnie Scott’s Artistic Director and jazz pianist James Pearson and his acclaimed trio, with a concert paying tribute to the 1973 album The Reunion by Stephane Grappelli and George Shearing. Lizzie commissioned specially written arrangements by Andrew Cottee (whose credits include arranging for the John Wilson Orchestra) and James Pearson. Expect to hear some dazzling virtuosic swing, alongside smooth ballads that instantly transport you to that glorious bygone era of jazz at its finest – paying homage to two of the greatest artists in music history.
