VERY SPECIAL GUEST
APPEARING LIVE WITH
RONNIE SCOTT'S JAZZ ORCHESTRA
After acquiring a strange and somewhat unfashionable obsession with Jazz and Big Band music at an early age, (and in Wigan!) Georgina began her musical career working as a professional trumpet player almost everywhere up, down, left and right of the country. Working for years with many famous faces, such as Frank Sinatra Junior, Nancy Sinatra and Seal and touring Big Bands in Concert Halls, television and radio, Georgina learned her trade as a lead trumpet player.
Harbouring a desire to wear a posh frock rather than the same as 'the lads' in the band, Georgina decided to make a dash for the front mic! Having sung with Radio 2's Big Band and the BBC Concert Orchestra, she is now resident vocalist with Ronnie Scott's Jazz Orchestra and is also in great demand with her highly entertaining trumpet/vocal trio shows.
I've had the pleasure of sharing the Savoy stage with Georgina Jackson on a couple of occasions, on behalf of Children in Need. Her marvellous voice and musicianship, with Ronnie Scott's band, has been a delight.”
Sir Terry Wogan
“That was amazing... The real deal... I never thought I'd fall in love with a girl from Wigan, but I did tonight!”
Sir Bruce Forsyth (At Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club)
“The BBC Big Band is joined by one of the UK's finest jazz singers of today Georgina Jackson”
“Georgina is really very good indeed, a talent definitely worth supporting… top form”.
Sir Michael Parkinson (BBC Radio 2)
