Anita Wardell Quartet

We are delighted to welcome the Anita Wardell Quartet. Born in the UK and raised in Adelaide Australia, Anita is best known as an outstanding scat singer and a skilled writer and performer of vocalese lyrics to solos by the likes of Cannonball Adderley, Charlie Parker and Dexter Gordon.

She is also a sensitive interpreter of standards and jazz originals and has collected several awards, including a recent prize for Best Jazz Vocalist from the British Jazz Awards.

Singer Norma Winstone praised her "unexpected vulnerability, which makes her reading of the ballads both beautiful and touching." Bebop pioneer Mark Murphy proclaimed Anita "a gift from Australia", adding "What hits me, is how expressive her ballad singing is. Then she has the courage to scat a ballad or two, not unlike a young disciple of the Ben Webster school."

Tonight’s performance is part of Anita’s UK tour with her London quartet, Robin Aspland (piano),  Jeremy Brown (bass) and Steve Brown (drums).
