Described by Scott Yanow as "one of the most consistently creative of all jazz singers", Sheila Jordan returns to London for a special show on her 90th birthday. It is also a rare UK outing for her favoured duo format of bass and voice. Here she is joined by renowned American bass player, Cameron Brown (George Adams/Don Pullen, Archie Shepp).

Born on November 18th 1928, Jordan is a legendary figure in jazz history - an NEA jazz master and critically acclaimed singer-songwriter. She came up on the Detroit scene in the 1940s as part of a coterie of young players in thrall to the mercurial genius of Charlie Parker (who championed the young singer). Jordan spent years developing a high-wire improvisational approach unlike anyone else on the scene, and made history with her classic 1963 debut Portrait of Sheila, Blue Note’s first album by a vocalist.
