A LITTLE (JAZZ) NIGHT MUSIC - Tribute to the Music of Stephen SondheimA LITTLE (JAZZ) NIGHT MUSICA Tribute to the Music of Stephen Sondheim
Following her sold-out Ella Fitzgerald show in the HotSpot Music Club in April, Stella Bass returns once again, this time to celebrate Stephen Sondheim’s 85th year with a concert of his most popular songs – with a jazz twist! Featuring wonderful new jazz-tinged arrangements, the programme includes Sondheim’s best-loved songs, bridging the worlds of musicals and jazz.
The concert celebrates the music of the Academy Award-winning Broadway composer and lyricist who got his first big break in 1957 when hired as lyricist for Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story. Two of his own musicals, Sweeney Todd (2007) and the recent Into the Woods (2015) have been adapted for the big screen, and in this new show, Sondheim’s music – including iconic songs such as Broadway Baby, Losing My Mind and the Oscar-winning Sooner or Later – are adapted beautifully with new jazz arrangements.
His most famous song, Send in the Clowns - is taken from his musical, "A Little Night Music" - hence the title of the show. Not to be missed!
