Friday 21 May 7.00pm
Chris McNulty has been given the honour of joining ABC Jazz National this coming May as ‘Artist in Residence’ where she’ll feature a selection of music from her personal collection – tracks by other artists and also some of her own that have guided or impacted her jazz journey. If you’re lucky enough to live in Perth you’ll also be able to hear some of those selections LIVE at The Ellington on Friday, May 21st. You can tune into ABC.net.au/Jazz every day at 2pm from May 1st onwards to listen in and then again every Sunday for Chris’ full week’s program.
A superb interpreter of the Great American Songbook, sprinkled with a few of her own highly unique originals, McNulty brings the ‘sass’ of Sarah Vaughan, the elegance of Ella Fitzgerald and the sophistication of Streisand to West Australian audiences. Joined by her equally agile and sensitive ensemble, listeners are treated to high energy jazz, New York style. McNulty’s mesmerizing storytelling, phrasing and ballad singing continue to excite and enchant audiences worldwide. Don’t miss this one. BOOK early.
“Exquisite….McNulty applies poignant jazz chops to the vocal, while accomplishing the impossible, the expression of her story through song….making listeners rethink the meaning of why we love jazz..” 5 Stars Blaine Fallis, All About Jazz
“Her liquid phrasing and luminous tone underscores a voice of serene beauty and striking veracity…compelling emotional fervency. One of the foremost singer-composers on the scene today.” 4 stars Peter Quinn, Jazz Wise UK
…A soulful vocalist with a soaring, sensuous quality, a sly, seasoned delivery and natural sense of swing, Chris McNulty imparts her own unique magic interpreting jazz standards and distinguishes herself as one of the elite jazz singers on the scene…” Bill Milkowski, New York
“… a terrific ability to trace serpentine routes…. she tempers the prevailing melancholy with an undercurrent of hope-fueled anticipation, resulting in a fascinating sense of looking simultaneously backward and forward…..hints at a hipper Streisand….marvellous legerdemain. ” Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times
