Sheila Jordan et Harvie Swartz / Michel Donato et Karen Young

A "voice/double bass" summit meeting! A union of this kind gives rise to curiosity to say the least, indeed to pure, unadulterated respect, given the degree of difficulty inherent to voice/double bass duets, which rely more on bravery than on style. The exponents of the genre are a rare breed, and one can't but rejoice at this opportunity of hearing the cream of the trop in their world premiere joint appearance. In 1983, Sheila Jordan's veiled and felt-like voice, her bruise-covered swing, found very impeccable backing in the finely sculpted stylings of Harvie Swartz. White Michel Donato's sober and hardy style has been the foundation for Karen Young's generous and dear tone since 1982. An exalting double-bill featuring theme four very voluble artists, who have prepared several numbers especially for their Festival performance. Irresistible!
