Benny Goodman ~ Billie Holiday Session



BENNY GOODMAN~BILLIE HOLIDAY SESSION

Andy Firth, Australia’s virtuoso clarinet player, teams up with songstress Rebecca Mendoza in concert to present the music of Benny Goodman and Billie Holiday from the Verve and Decca years.

Andy is one of a very small number of Australian artists to have ever performed a concert under their own name at Carnegie Hall New York. On the evening of the 21st March 2008, Andy Firth played a concert billed as “Goodman & Beyond” to a standing ovation

Andy has performed with such jazz and blues legends as B.B. King, Buddy DeFranco, Ingrid Jensen, Diana Krall, Wynton Marsalis, Lee Konitz, Steve Haughton, Tommy Banks, Steve Harlos, James Moody, Bud Shank, Don Lusher, Kenny Ball Jazz Band, Acker Bilk, Dutch College Swing Band and many more. In 2006 Andy was honoured with the Australian Mo Award for “Best Jazz Instrumentalist.”

Rebecca began her carreer singing blues and jazz after been influenced by singers such as Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Diane Schuur, Nancy Wilson and Ella Fitzgerald. She later moved on to musical theatre where she has performed major roles in musicals around the world such as “We Will Rock You” (in Australia and Japan), “Miss Saigon” (Germany), “Lord of the Rings” (Toronto) “Hair” (Australia and Asia), and many others. In recent years Rebecca has returned to her roots to sing jazz and blues.

Combine these two artists with the Joe Ruberto Trio and you'll experience something magical - Benny Goodman & Billie Holiday
Enjoy a delicious two course dinner along with the show and you will have an experience to remember for a long time to come.
