“When Hetty Kate takes the stage you can’t help but notice. She has a stage presence only matched by the clarity of her voice – couple this with her dedication to music that swings, and you have the jazz musician’s singer.” – James Morrison Multi-Instrumentalist (AU)
For these intimate concerts, British/Australian jazz vocalist Hetty Kate has invited celebrated musicians, pianist Maxime Moyaerts and bassist Victor Foulon to join her. As the trio explores classics and curiosities from the swing, cool jazz and bop eras you’ll discover the joys of the jazz trio, a simplicity allowing each musician, and importantly, each song to shine.
“Like Peggy Lee on a Vespa” Marc Myers, Jazzwax Magazine (USA)
Described as “the real deal” and “one of the best swing singers on the scene today”, jazz singer Hetty Kate has been pursuing an impressive international career for over a decade. From intimate clubs to the most prestigious stages, Hetty’s career has taken her all over the world, from New Zealand to New York.
With her clear voice and remarkable intonation, reminiscent of the singers of the 1950s, Hetty Kate swings the beautiful songs of the American Songbook – from Gershwin to Dameron, from swing to bop. You’ll notice that Hetty “honors the composer” by staying true to the message and melody of his composition, and uses improvisation in a way that never interferes with the lyrics. It is this rare quality and a compelling ease on stage that has attracted the attention of musicians and audiences the world over.
Over the course of her career, Hetty has released ten critically acclaimed albums and performed at many festivals including the New York Winter Jazz Festival (USA), the Sapporo Jazz Festival (Japan), the Prague Proms (Czech Republic), the Melbourne, Sydney and Perth International Jazz Festivals (Australia), the Cavell Leitch International Jazz Festival (New Zealand), the Peniscola Jazz Festival (Spain), the Piacenza Jazz Festival (Italy). Hetty also toured extensively with award-winning Australian jazz musician James Morrison for many years, notably as the featured vocalist on his symphonic concert (Europe/Asia/Australia) entitled “The A to Z of Jazz”.
Join us to enjoy a warm, entertaining and masterful evening of treasures from the American Songbook.
