Marjorie Barnes & Millennium Jazz Orchestra - Both Sides Now
Singer Marjorie Barnes can rightly be called a 'grande dame du jazz', with more than five decades of experience. Now she returns to the songs of her youth with the Millennium Jazz Orchestra. Their critically acclaimed album 'Both Sides Now' will be performed in its entirety, framed by classics in special Christmas arrangements by band leader Joan Reinders. The American diva and famous big band celebrate their new album in a Christmas atmosphere in the Bimhuis.
Both Sides Now
According to Marjorie Barnes, the album is like a journey through different moments in her life. “I have lived a lot of life,” she says. 'You take that into account when telling your story.' Marjorie Barnes grew up in New York and lived successively in London, Paris and Vienna before settling in the Netherlands. She sang on Broadway and worked with legends such as Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne and Sammy Davis Junior. "I don't think there is anything more exciting than a big band," is her conclusion. 'Millennium Jazz Orchestra is truly one of the best in the Netherlands.' The group led by conductor/arranger Joan Reinders has guaranteed genuine big band jazz for more than 30 years. It gave concerts at North Sea Jazz and in the Concertgebouw and collaborated with celebrities such as Toots Thielemans and Lee Konitz.
