An Evening of Jazz and Cabaret, Norwich Playhouse
Chris Bailey's annual extravaganza in aid of cancer charities Breast Cancer Now and Keeping Abreast gave a full house a top-class evening of music, song and comedy.
The 'jazz' element was well to the fore with three excellent pianists on show – musical director Simon Brown, Chris Cooper and Geoff Eales, with an accomplished tribute to some keyboard 'greats'.
Add to this the sensitive vocals of Brigitte Beraha, and the lyrical tenor sax of guest George Crowley, and jazzers in the house were satisfied.
The Voxettes gave us close harmony, and Rachel Duffield hit a nostalgic note with some second world war songs, to which the audience responded warmly.
