The Spatz Quartet: Sinatra Unplugged

About The Spatz Quartet: Sinatra Unplugged

Mr Sinatra, surely the greatest crooner of them all – his music is iconic, his easy flow truly masterful, and his technique led the way for all to follow. His hits were usually always characterised with wonderful orchestral or big band arrangements.

Tonight, The Spatz Quartet strip away the orchestras, big bands and large musical scores, leaving the melodies to speak for themselves. And of course, they do when the music comprises compositions from Sammy Cahn, Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Cole Porter, Gershwin and others. Roy Mac, Spatz highly respected bandleader and vocalist, never attempts to perform Sinatra material as a tribute act, but brings his own take on the music – accompanied by world class jazz guitarist Malcolm Macfarlane, sophisticated horns and reeds player Dick Lee, and the inimitable Ed Kelly on Bass, they offer the music in a completely different style. Stripped back, not even a piano in sight, the focus is on the strength of the melodies.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Spatz Quartet: Sinatra Unplugged are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
