New Show - Curtis Stigers

Saturday 17th October 20097.30pm
All Tickets: £24.50
Booking Fee £2.50

Curtis Stigers is at the forefront of a new generation of jazz singers. With one of the most distinctive voices in music, the singer/saxophonist/songwriter pushes the boundaries of conventional jazz performers and expands the jazz repertory creating modern jazz standards. Curtis continues to blaze a path as one of his generation's finest and most original interpreters of modern songs.

He's toured the world in concert with such renowned pop artists as Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, and Prince, while also sharing the bill with such jazz greats as Nancy Wilson, Randy Brecker, and Toots Thielmans. Stigers has performed on "The Tonight Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman," in the United States and 'Parkinson' in the United Kingdom and has been called "one of the best male jazz singers of his generation" by JazzTimes. His refusal to stand still, and his consistent desire to grow and evolve musically, has earned him admiration and recognition-and kept critics guessing.
What distinguishes Stigers from many jazz singers today is his ability to craft and create beautiful music of his own."What I'm after is a complex and ever-changing thing, which makes it difficult to define who I am. I sing beautiful love songs, but I'm not really a crooner. I write, but I'm not just a singer-songwriter. I'm certainly a jazz singer but so much more, too. "
