Doris Day wasn't just a great actress - she was one of most expressive jazz singers of her generation.
Despite the glittering film career that earned her numerous awards and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Doris Day said that the best time of her career was when she was a big band singer. She just love singing, with a sparkling style and had " a voice so fresh you could smell it," - Andy Williams. Even in her 70's she commented that "The happiest times in my life were the days when I was travelling with the band".
With her lilting contralto voice, wholesome blonde beauty and glowing smile, she was a top box office draw and sensational recording artist, with many hit songs including "Que Sera Sera", "A Secret Love", "When I Fall In Love", "Sentimental Journey", "It's Magic" and the everlasting jazz standard "Lullaby Of Broadway".
Trudy Kerr is renowned as one of the UK's finest jazz vocalists. She got her big break when Ronnie Scott asked her to perform at his Club, and now she has performed all over the world. To sing the music of Doris Day, Trudy is accompanied on piano by the much in demand award winner Tom Cawley and on double bass by jazz legend Geoff Gascoyne.
