Ten years after Elaine first won the Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2013 – Best Singer, she’s performing ever more wonderfully and has been judged Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2023 – Best Singer. Elaine Delmar is just the greatest evergreen music maker.
Last April, Elaine Delmar, one of Britain’s greatest performers of great jazz music on the international stage, arrived for an evening concert of some of her enormous repertoire of songs from the 20th century music books.
Not only was that concert a commercial sold-out success, it was also an artistic tour-de-force with Elaine entertaining with a wide range of memorable music with the audience demanding more.
So there was no hesitation in extending this return invitation for more of Elaine’s Bottom Drawer music.
Elaine Delmar continues to be the most outstanding jazz singer- with the voice, looks and personality that have captivated world-wide audiences.
Elaine will again open up her musical bottom drawer, bringing out not only well known and regularly requested musical gems, but also some often overlooked and forgotten masterpieces that will delight and surprise even the most experienced, well-travelled audience.
Elaine’s bottom drawer contains a wonderful selection of melodies and words – both fun filled and reflective emotions, from the pens of musical greats, including George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin and so many more.
Elaine is equally at home, whether entertaining a concert audience, or performing in the more intimate cabaret/small theatre settings.
Her American Song Book presentations sold out not only here at The Crazy Coqs, but also at London’s The Other Palace and The Pheasantry and in a spectacular big band show at Pizza Express Live Holborn show for the 2022 London Jazz Festival.
For this concert, Elaine is accompanied at the piano by the lyrical swing of Barry Green and on double bass by British Jazz Awards nominee Simon Thorpe.
