Fine cuts from Barber
Jill Barber is from Toronto (the one in Canada) but tours the world constantly with her retro 40s-style music. She is a chanteuse. Her latest album, Chances, is chockers with fully orchestrated tunes that she wrote or co-wrote. They sound like old classics with lush arrangements and a smoky delivery - and they may well become modern classics.
Jill Barber with Robbie Grunwald on keys and Les Cooper (who played and did the arrangements on her album) on bass will play the Lismore City Bowling Club next Thursday, October 22, from 8pm.
This will be a special gig, for sure.
Entry is $15/10.
