Alma Zygier has been wowing audiences all over Melbourne. We are very excited to have her quartet playing classic jazz standards from the golden age.
Alma has been fascinated by the pre-war era of Jazz; the singers, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Memphis Minnie, and the Broadway composers who largely provided the repertoire, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, Rodgers.
She has a voice from another era and brings an emotional maturity to her performance that belies her years. Performing with a similarly minded group of hot young players she brings her American Songbook repertoire to the 21st century.
