Following the 2004 album release, Don't Talk, for Sony's Jazz label Sir Michael Parkinson promoted Clare via both his radio and television shows. Several awards followed and now Clare is an established star in her own right.
We often hear Clare with the big band supporting other artists and so it was a real treat to hear her stretch out with the full and mighty roar of one of the finest big bands in the world.
Jazzmouse's Paul Fawcus was the live FOH engineer for this event via the bands new management from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's Special Projects department.
Andy Hardy from Truesounds provided the PA equipment which featured the two of Yamaha's M7-CL mixing consoles. Paul has used both the Yamaha PM-5D and M7-CL desks with the BBC Big Band and loves the flexibility that they provide.
Clare's album Get Happy is available from her website and from all good music stores.
