Abbey Lincoln

Thu, 30. Oct 1997, 8 PM | Jazz-Gala
Messe Basel

Due to a rare genetic disease, Michel Petrucciani only grew to a height of approximately three feet, however, as a pianist, he was without question one of the biggest names in the world. He varied his repertoire on a yearly basis and every tour was exciting and new. The second star of the evening Abbey Lincoln, the wife of drummer Max Roach, had come to Basel for the first time. Her singing demanded the audience’s undivided attention, definitely not background music. If you closed your eyes, you heard Billie Holiday rushing by.
