In ‘Jazz Cigarette’ Ali is backed by three of Australia’s finest jazz musicians as she sings the songs that
made her want to sing – featuring classic jazz ballads and sassy blues made famous by Billie, Ella & Britney…
Ranging from Gershwin’s ‘The Man I Love’ and Hoagy Carmichael’s ‘Georgia on my mind’ to unique
interpretations of Eurythmic’s ‘Sweet Dreams and Britney’s ‘Oops I did it Again’ this evening of song
is the perfect platform for one of Australia’s most unique and versatile voices to reach its operatic highs
and velvety mellows.
‘Cabaret favourite Ali McGregor has the kind of silky smooth singing voice that transports you to a different plane,
in a way that makes you forget everything you were doing before walking in to the theatre and everything you
intended to be doing when you walk out again’
The Scotsman 2010
‘Her velvet vocals have the ability to transport the audience to a smoky 1940s jazz bar, blending modern popular hits with the great jazz divas’
The Edinburgh List 2010
'...a fusion of operatic purity and soulful improvisation..'
