Crypt Late: Celebrating Great Female Jazz Voices

Wednesday 20 March 2024

7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Celebrating Great Female Jazz Voices

Peggy Lee, Billie Holiday, Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln weren’t just great jazz vocalists – they were also songwriters, who contributed some key and iconic works to the canon. 

In Celebrating Great Female Jazz Voices, vocalist Ineza and the Alex Webb Trio explore the repertoire penned by the great female songstresses: Billie’s Tell Me More, Peggy’s It’s a Good Day, Abbey’s Throw it Away, Betty Carter’s Tight and many more, including poet Fran Landesman’s classic lyric Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most

As well as the classics, Women’s Words, Sisters’ Stories also celebrates great female songwriters from the modern day, including Jazzmeia Horn, Cecile Mclorin Salvant and Rachelle Ferrell.  

Doors open from 7pm allowing you plenty of time to settle in, and enjoy some delicious food and drinks before the show starts at 8pm.

Ineza is a dazzling Rwandan-born Belgian Jazz singer, based in London. She is a graduate of both Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and Maastricht Conservatoire in The Netherlands.   

She has a passion for performing repertoire composed by the great female stars of jazz.  Alex Webb is a pianist, arranger and songwriter with a long history of working with leading jazz vocalists; his songs have been recorded by Liane Carroll, China Moses, Jo Harrop, Allan Harris, Cherise, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and many others. 

She is also a passionate educator, and next to her work as a singing teacher she has been involved in various workshop-leading projects.
