A celebration of the Great American Songbook: Gershwin, Fats Waller, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen and others

Grammy nominated American pianist, vocalist, songwriter, Judy Carmichael will celebrate the music of Fats Waller, and other stride piano greats with an evening of gems from the Great American Songbook, as well as her own witty compositions. No less than Count Basie himself nicknamed Judy “Stride” in reference to her mastery of that early piano style popularized by Thomas “Fats” Waller, Count Basie and James P. Johnson.

JazzTimes, America's premier jazz magazine, comparing Judy's vocals to Peggy Lee, wrote:"Carmichael exhibits a truly remarkable ability to channel Lee's breathy invitingness and her befogged insouciance."

A favourite at Live at Zedel, Judy Carmichael plays to sell-out crowds with every visit. Past appearances at the Pizza Express, St. James Theatre, Ronnie Scott's and countless U.K. festivals sold out weeks in advance.

Judy Carmichael appears frequently on radio and TV throughout the world and maintains a busy international touring schedule. She is popular with both jazz and cabaret audiences with her soulful, swinging interpretations of the Great American Songbook, and equally impressive hilarious, improvisational anecdotes.

Suitable for 16+ years
Part of Watermans Cabaret Nights Spring 2018 season.
