About this event

In 1962 the world was blessed with the chart-topping, collaborative jazz sensation of Nancy Wilson and Cannonball Adderley. With Wilson's elusively elegant vocals combined with the state-of-the-art hard bop horn style of Adderley, these virtuosos made jazz history, accessible to all lovers of music.

Making a FRINGE WORLD Festival debut, this performance has previously sold out shows at The Ellington Jazz Club, with standing ovations. Allow upcoming jazz vocalist/band leader Francesca Quinlivan (Frankie) to take you on a journey through time, exploring some of the most beautiful music numbers ever written, whilst providing a history of jazz, and its impact on music and society today (interspersed with much hilarity).
