Two multi-award-winning UK jazz musicians, vocalist Claire Martin OBE and pianist Nikki Iles come together for a concert of songs recorded by legendary singer Tony Bennett, taken from the two albums he recorded with the great jazz pianist Bill Evans.
They will revisit the classic repertoire and will include Nikki Iles’ fresh arrangements of My Foolish Heart, You Must Believe in Spring, Some Other Time and When in Rome.
