London Jazz Festival: Stomping And Singin' The Blues: Macy Gray + David Murray Big Band + Jay Phelps
Hot on the heels of a performance to a packed crowd at the Back2Black Festival, Macy Gray joins saxophonist David Murray’s roaring big band in a blues-and-soul-drenched set of covers – from Metallica and Kanye West to Willie Dixon and James “Blood” Ulmer – and songs by Macy herself.

This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Securing a record deal after a stint as a highly sought-after session vocalist, having recorded her first demo almost by accident, huge international success quickly followed Gray's first album; 'On How Life Is'. She combines raw, honest lyrics with a polished, funky soundtrack giving her songs a double-edged appeal. Unique, oddball, original and crazy, but, most definitely, very special.

'Jay always brings that soulful vibe' (Wynton Marsalis).
