The Vortex & Cafe OTO celebrate Evan Parker's 70th. 21, 23, 25 Oct at The Vortex
The Cinematic Orchestra vocalist,Â Heidi VogelÂ has worked with Isaac Hayes, F-ire Big Band, The Brand New Heavies, Cleveland Watkiss, Eska and others. Tonight performs material from her debut solo album, ‘Turn it Up’.
â€śSheâ€™s got an extraordinary voice….an incredible range to her voice and such a texture to it as well. Youâ€™ll really enjoy the album, keep an eye out for Heidi Vogelâ€ť â€“ Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2)
“…It is an approach that intensifies masterworks by Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Gilberto Gil and Ivan Lins, better than any interpreter since Elis Regina. Vogel captures an intimacy that is less romantic than conspiratorial – whispered secrets and shared confidences rather than pillow talk.” – Jazz Times ****
“From her towering opening performance, Heidi Vogel says everything in the right key…. Vogel’s voice is an extraordinarily rich and complex instrument, one that you can easily fall in love with…” – Jazzwise Magazine ****
â€śClassic and traditionally beautiful!â€ť â€“ Osunlade (Yoruba Records)
