“Jeff Hooper is one of my favourite singers. His rendition of 'Windows of the World' on his album A Passing Glance is new, fresh, and wonderful.” Hal David. (Bacharach & David) “I was totally blown away with this CD. An intelligent and challenging choice of songs, played by the cream of the UK jazz scene. I especially loved the original lyrics written by Jeff, who sings with depth and passion throughout. His vocal range is stunning, and he swings too! A real treat." Claire Martin. Jazz Singer and Radio 3 Presenter

The Nottingham Jazz Orchestra presents:

JEFF HOOPER - International Big Band Singer

The Nottingham Jazz Orchestra will be joined by seasoned big band singer Jeff Hooper. Jeff Hooper is one of the most talented and best-liked singers on the European music-scene. He is an internationally known cabaret artist. Jeff developed his talent as a singer with the famous Syd Lawrence Orchestra.

Early in his career Jeff worked with Matt Monro (who taught him how to tie a bow tie!), Morecambe and Wise, and Stephane Grapelli. He sang with Dame Shirley Bassey and Sir Tom Jones at the opening of the National Assembly of Wales. He is a great favourite on the BBC RADIO 2 show and Friday Night is Music Night. Jeff is a friend of the great lyricist Hal David of Bacharach and David fame, and has performed new songs by him at David’s request.

He has also featured in major marketing drives for Skoda, Jeep and VW Motors, all featuring John Cacavas songs with Hal David lyrics.

Jeff likes to give really well presented shows with entertaining dialogue, and combined with his magnificent singing this has made him a popular figure on the music scene. Not just lists of songs, but fully developed shows.

His work is prolific, with overseas concert tours, weekly radio shows, luxury cruises and regular performances across Britain and beyond in some of the world's top jazz clubs, concert halls and cabaret spots. Jeff and his Swing Easy band was selected to be the Strictly Come Dancing Tour Band.

As well as running his own powerhouse big band, Jeff is a regular guest with the BBC Big Band, and appears monthly at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London.

Truly a night of great music, and entertainment not to be missed!
