Singer and saxophonist, Curtis Stigers epitomises musical class; suave sophistication, style and presence. His shows have been outstanding highlights of the Festival’s last decade and we’re delighted to welcome him back with his own top class US band. A wonderfully luxurious voice, superb phrasing and natural musicality is everything the best jazz vocalists need to move audiences emotionally, and Stigers has them all. He’s always swinging, timing on the button; hitting every note where it counts. making him one of the greatest jazz singers of our age. With a set-list spanning his entire career, from massive chart hits to his super sophisticated 2020 album, “Gentleman”, he embraces everything from classic swing to the great American songbook to contemporary songs, and makes it all his own. Stigers is the jazz singer of the moment for discerning listeners. “An exuberant combination of artistry and raw emotion” (The Times).
