UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra presents a new concert series dedicated to stellar vocalists! This show will see American jazz singer and songwriter China Moses perform in Finland for the very first time. Having won over audiences around the world, this power woman will take jazz to a new era and create her own standards. The collaborative concert will be conducted by UMO Helsinki’s chief conductor and artistic director, the American-Austrian Ed Partyka.

The concert has  a brand new program that will be especially arranged for China Moses and UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra, called “The Jazz Heart of Soul”. This program will pay homage to the soulful side of vocal jazz and to female soul greats, some well-known and some forgotten. Audience members can expect the golden voice of China Moses to be supported by the full breadth and power of the jazz orchestra, as well as moments featuring the outstanding soloists of UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra in intimate dialogue with our amazing guest vocalist.

Note also Great Voices #2: Ola Onabulé feat. UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra at Savoy Theatre on Thursday 12th December

A winning performer, Moses approaches jazz in her compelling, unconventional and eclectic way. She is an original songwriter who has inherited her exceptional brilliance from her mother, the celebrated Dee Dee Bridgewater. Expect a wide range of moods and genres from jazz to blues, swing to funk and melancholic ballads to explosive energy. So far, Moses has issued six solo albums – the first of which came out when she was only seventeen years of age – and appeared on dozens of recordings as a sidewoman. She has also tackled the Great American Songbook during her career, paying homage to defining jazz and blues voices who have inspired her, including Dinah Washington, Nina Simone and Etta James. In addition to her career as a musician, the versatile artist has appeared on silver screen and worked as a TV host. chinamoses.com

“China Moses has an incisive voice, powerful swing and a high voltage personality.” – London Evening Standard
