@ THE RUBY CARTER JAZZ LOUNGE
MEMO is proud to present one of Australia’s most popular jazz stylists, Nichaud Fitzgibbon. A singer with a rich, sultry voice and an unforced, yet commanding delivery, Nichaud grew up in a celebrated musical family, and always had that charisma that draws audiences into the stories contained in the lyrics of her songs.
Coming to the Ruby Carter Jazz Lounge, Nichaud will present Songs For Lovers, choosing some of her favourites from the Great American Songbook. The music will range through swing, blues, Latin grooves, bossa nova and beyond, with songs written by greats like Gershwin, Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Jobim, Mercer and Mancini.
Nichaud will lead a stellar band, with Mat Jodrell (trumpet), her illustrious brother, Mark Fitzgibbon (piano), Philip Rex (bass). This will be a first-class night of singing and swingin’….our advice is to book now to avoid disappointment.
“Nichaud Fitzgibbon has been gracing us with her distinctive smouldering ways for years, she entrances audiences with her beautiful smoky vocal quality and her natural sense of swing. She can rustle a boisterous Latin feel at whim and then melt you with her restraint.”Xenia Hanusiak -The Age
