The Music of Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley presented by FRANKIE

Tuesday 09 March 7.00pm

In 1962, the world was blessed with the remarkable, collaborative magic of the chart topping album: Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley.

Wilson’s elusively, elegant vocals combined with the state-of-the-art, hard-bop horn style of Adderley, is a sheer melodic masterpiece accessible to all lovers of music.

Coming straight off the bat from a sold out run of shows at the 2021 FRINGE WORLD festival, this performance will include crowd pleasing numbers from this album such as; “Happy Talk”, “Save Your Love For Me” and “Never Will I Marry”, as well as other beautiful arrangements written/performed by Wilson and Adderley.

Francesca Quinlivan (Frankie), at 22 years of age is an up and coming Jazz vocalist who has eagerly studied at The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. From performing with well-known local Perth artists such as: Chris Foster, Sarah Ramsey, Kate Pass and Dr Nick Abbey, Frankie has acquired an exceptional array of experience and talent and is influenced by the vocal styles of Anita O’Day, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, Karen Carpenter and Amy Winehouse. Using her illustrious, and sultry, alto vocals, Frankie will serenade you into the night with her timeless and sophisticated technique.

Saxophonist, Claire Keet will be delightfully coupling Frankie as Cannonball in this performance. After graduating in 2020, Claire took the prize for Best Jazz Honours Recitalist from The Western Australian Academy Of Performing Arts. With her distinguished style, Claire’s incredible skill transcends her years, honouring ‘The Great’ Cannonball Adderley.

Make sure you secure your spot for a gorgeous evening, showcasing one of the most magnificent musical alliances ever known.
