Timeless: a word that is far too often applied to anything and everything; but when it comes to The Great American Songbook, it is perfectly appropriate! The many standard swinging jazz numbers composed in the United States between the 1920s and the ‘50s by great masters like Cole Porter, Jerome Kern or the Rodgers & Hart duo, are just that: timeless. Each and every number has not only unfailingly stood the test of time, but has gained in lustre with each new interpretation.
The Vlaams Radiokoor brings some of the finest numbers from The Great American Songbook for choir, plunging you fully into the mood and glamour of an American jazz club.
