Curtis Stigers


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

Curtis Stigers image

The suave sophistication, fabulous presence and sheer musicality of the singer and saxophonist completely stunned us last year as Curtis Stigers saluted Frank Sinatra in our special show. Now here he is to play a full evening's concert with his own group. That wonderfully luxurious voice, allied to superb phrasing and musicality, always swinging, always on the button, make him one of the greatest jazz singers of our age. With his top class US Band, and an approach that embraces everything from classic swing to contemporary songs, from the American songbook to his early pop hits, Stigers is the jazz man of the moment for discerning listeners. “An exuberant combination of artistry and raw emotion” (The Times).
