Vocalist and scat singer Anita Wardell, famed for using the voice as an instrument, is appearing at Herts Jazz Club this Sunday. (5)

She has made her name for vocal improvisations and adding vocalese lyrics to instrumental solos.

Singer Norma Winstone praised her, “unexpected vulnerability, which makes her reading of the ballads both beautiful and touching. Her honesty shines in this well-chosen collection of songs.”

And bebop pioneer Mark Murphy singled out her expressive ballad singing.

Anita is appearing at the club which meets at the Hawthorne Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, from 7.30pm.

Tickets at £3 students/£8 members/£10 concessions/£11 full are available in advance from here. On the door they are £5 students/£9 members/£12 concessions/£13 full.
