Last Show: Saturday 30 th March 2019

PizzaExpress Live (Birmingham)

Barb Jungr ' Shelter From The Storm' - songs of hope for troubled times, featuring Jamie Safir on piano and Davide Mantovani on bass, arranged by jazz giant Lawrence Hobgood. Considered to be the finest cabaret singer in recent times, Jungr is renowned for her unique vocal style, interpretation of song and radical approach to arrangements. For 'Shelter From The Storm', her twentieth album, Jungr tapped into New York's dynamic jazz scene and joined hands across the Atlantic in a major collaboration with Hobgood. The resulting record and accompanying performances were the American progressive and contemporary jazz piano virtuoso's first major collaboration since his Grammy award-winning work with Kurt Elling.

"The brilliant jazz singer on world-beating form, Barb Jungr is the alchemist among jazz singers. She takes dubious songs, and turns them into gold" - The Telegraph

Shelter From The Storm, with its overarching theme of optimism, includes three original tracks; this stunning collection of songs also features reworkings from writers as diverse as Springsteen and Bowie to Sondheim and Rogers & Hammerstein, as well as Jungr's own renowned interpretations of Dylan and Cohen. An auditory journey of balms and healing songs, the show includes arrangements of classics like All Along the Watchtower, What the World Needs Now, Woodstock and more.
