ONE of Britain’s most popular jazz songstresses is returning to the Hampshire club that played a major role in putting her on the road to fame to help celebrate its diamond anniversary.

It was from Eastleigh’s Concorde that Clare Teal launched the career which has made her the nation’s most successful jazz singers in decades.

As The Concorde celebrates its 60th anniversary, Clare will on May 24 be performing with her Hollywood Orchestra, conducted by world class arranger and composer Guy Barker.

It was at The Concorde that Clare learned much of her stage craft before breaking into the big time, clinching a £3 million pound five-album deal.

She has never looked back, scooping musical accolades including British Jazz Singer of the Year award winner and is well known to millions of radio listeners for her twice weekly BBC big band shows.

During her Concorde show she will also be paying homage to other first ladies of swing, including Ella Fitzgerald.
