Paolo Conte returns to the UK for this one London concert.
Imagine the voice of Tom Waits and the soul of Cole Porter inhabiting the body of a craggily handsome Italian poet, painter and singer-songwriter.
His music blends the heart and soul of jazz with the powerful sounds of the Big Band era, coupled with the rhythms of the tango, taking you on a journey from Buenos Aires dance hall to Louisiana juke-joint.
No artist I can think of so ingeniously unites elements of jazz music’s past and present. Nothing less than magical
