Estelle Kokot performs new arrangements of her original material and previews her new album The Sound of You featuring songs written by Chico Freeman and Jan Pulsford. Estelle will be launching The Sound of You in South Africa at the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz festival on the 25th of September 2015 headlining alongside artists that include Hugh Masekela and Cecile McLorin Salvant. Tonight she is joined by Neville Malcolm on double bass and Winston Clifford on drums. Expect the unexpected with strong South African flavours!
“These are not love songs for a wide-eyed little ingénue… thoughtful phrasing and perfect diction as well as a melodious voice. On all counts Kokot delivers. She has produced the kind of album that merits careful listening, and could become addictive.”
