Leon Redbone has occasionally flirted with fame (remember the Inter-City

'Relax' advertising campaign?

but is happy to be on the periphery of

musical fashion.

Sheila Jordan

Sheila Jordan is that rare phenomenon, a genuine jazz singer. Inspired in her early days by the bebop ferment around Charlie Parker (she was married to pianist Duke Jordan at the time), she took to improvisation as to the manner born, and has continued to produce outstanding music ever since. Her welcome return also includes participation in the Ladies of Jazz event on Thu 3 (same place, same time).
