The Alex Webb trio Feat. Danish Vocalist Sara Oschlag

Enjoy a night of international jazz, with The Alex Webb Trio joined by outstanding Danish vocalist Sara Oschlag, known for her purity of tone and cool, hip delivery.   

Oschlag has been a professional singer since 2003 with 2 successful album releases. Sara continues to perform live all over the UK, Europe and America, with an ever  exciting twist on classic jazz repertoire and some serious infectious swinging.

The Alex Webb Trio:

Alex, musical impresario leader of this hugely impressive trio, continues to shine in the Jazz industry with his diverse works, collaborations, theatre productions and new to be released album.  As a prolific songwriter, arranger and pianist, Alex's songs have been recorded by jazz singers China Moses, Mina Agossi, Sandra Nkake, Liane Carroll, Allan Harris, Alexia Gardner and Alexander Stewart, among others. His show 'Cafe Society Swing' has enjoyed several theatre runs in London and one in New York, where he received the New York Times 'Critic's Pick'.

In Sara's own words:

“So far, the two albums I have released before have been about catering to the wider jazz audience, keeping it light and choosing popular, well-known standards and bossa novas. My Little Boat is about songs that I wanted to record. Some I chose because I’ve loved them for a long time, like Strayhorn’s Lush Life. Some to challenge myself (there were a few of those) and some just fit the theme beautifully. One tune I really struggled with was Blood Count. I heard Marian McPartland play it on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz Radio Broadcast with Shirley Horn. It’s an instrumental version and I just fell in love with it. It’s the last tune Strayhorn wrote. In fact, he wrote it on his death bed. The sound is so poignant and the melody so beautiful and full of thought. I tried my best to keep that in my version, keeping it sparse and focus on the melody. I really like the lyrics, which were written by Elvis Costello. I think they capture a feeling and a moment so well. Both celebrating and mourning, remembering and letting go. Like we do in life, in all its different stages. This stage of my life is very adventurous and so are the songs on this album.”
