MADELINE EASTMAN: Madeline Eastman created a notable stir when she visit- ed the ]azz festival last year to participate in Fionna Duncan’s vocal workshop. She takes a classic jazz approach to phrasing and swing, but likes to improvise using the lyrics of the song rather than the more common recourse to scatted passages. a more sophisticated but also more difficult business. The singer will again take part in Fionna's week-long workshop, but also has a main stage concert to herself. with the aid of the Brian Kellock Trio.

I City Halls, Fri 4 Jul, 7.30pm.
