VOCALVERSATILITY: Milestones Jazz Club welcomes an exciting young singer fast making her mark on the UK jazz scene.
Zoe Gilby has received much praise for a versatile voice that mixes great jazz technique and a healthy dose of the blues with a deeply expressive and agile quality.
A childhood steeped in jazz means that her many influences are clear - not only great vocalists like Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, Nancy Wilson and Anita O'Day - but also revered instrumentalists like Dexter Gordon,
Chet Baker and John Coltrane.
