ELAINE DELMAR RECEIVES JAZZ AWARD!

“Fashions may change but quality is timeless which explains how the stylish Elaine Delmar has survived the passage of so many vocal trends over the years. A favourite with both Jazz and Cabaret audiences, she continues to set the standard for sophisticated rich-toned interpretations of the Great American Songbook” (London Evening Standard)
“Among the multitude of good jazz singers in Britain today, there is not one who can surpass Elaine Delmar. Few understand the repertoire as well as well or express it with such dynamic simplicity. When she sings a song as plainly as she can, it still emerges gently swinging, imbued with the spirit of jazz. She builds each performance with sure- footed musicianship” Sunday Observer
“One of the ageless, evergreen singing stars that we have … as beautiful and talented as ever… she’s marvellous!”
-Michael Parkinson, BBC Radio 2
“Truly defines the word class …”
-Humphrey Lyttelton, BBC Radio 2
