13 May Saturday – Gregg Arthur: Standard Time
Saturday 13 May 2017, 8.30pm
BOOK EARLY as dinner/show reservations are limited and sell out quickly
Australia’s Gregg Arthur is that rare entertainer who combines a sophisticated stage style with charm, humour and charisma. He now calls the United States home, living in Los Angeles, California and traveling the world performing the music he loves, so we are delighted to have him back on the Foundry616 stage tonight.
Gregg’s longstanding love affair with the great American Songbook will be on display, as will his considerable abilities to interpret what he calls the “new standards”- the pop and smooth jazz classics from brilliant writers and performers like Sting, Elvis Costello, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell.
STANDARD TIME is a stunning collection of Gregg’s favourite songs from the Great American Song Book. Tunes from Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael, Rodgers & Hart, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy Van Heusen & Sammy Cahn.
“I love the way you sing. You’re yourself, which makes you an original singer, your phrasing is perfection” Tony Bennett
“In my opinion he is the ultimate crooner.” Maestro (Dr.) Tommy Tycho, AM MBE
In the same genre as Diana Krall, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr and of course the incomparable Frank Sinatra, it’s the smooth, sophisticated style that developed in the New York Supper Clubs and bars from the 1940’s through to the 60’s showcasing songs that make this classic American art form still so popular today.
With his affable adaptations of the Great American Songbook as well as “New Standards” and originals, this will be one romantic night indeed, with the ultimate crooner… Don’t miss it!
