Backed by a classy combo of piano, saxophone, double bass and drums…and for one song, two violins…Amy presented the greatest songs of ‘The Legendary Ladies of Jazz’.
We were swept elegantly along a sepia-tinged road of yester-world icons such as Billie Holliday, Etta James, Dinah Washington and Ella Fitzgerald. There was an added touch of The Divine Miss M, and several impressive songs of Amy’s own.
The power, quality and sensitivity of Amy’s voice and delivery left the audience misty-eyed, wanting more, and queuing up to buy a copy of her cd, ‘Amy Michaels and the Good Time Girls’.
Those of you lucky enough to have tickets for New Year’s Eve have much to look forward to, when Amy graces our stage once more.
Thank you Amy and your team of talented musicians for a memorable night at the Brisbane Jazz Club. You are surely on a path to becoming a Legendary Lady of Brisbane Jazz.
