Luca Warmer met ‘Oh My Jazz’

Voice artist Luca Warmer pays tribute to the great jazz singers by telling their story through today's eyes. Think of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Carmen McRae and Nina Simone.

In this concert, in which the original theater version has been adapted to our living room, you will hear refined jazz melodies, compelling blues and heavenly gospels. What actually happened in 100 years of jazz? Oh My Jazz is about chasing dreams, wanting to be meaningful and unknown stories from the history of jazz.

Luca himself puts it this way: “Already when I was in my cradle, I was surrounded by the sounds of jazz. To be able to sing like Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin and Rachelle Ferrell, so freely and so passionately, that seemed like the ultimate happiness to me. I've asked myself: who am I to tell this story as a white woman? Music does not care about the divisions between colors, classes, age and gender. Music does not divide or judge, music connects. The women of jazz are an indispensable key to connection.”
