Dick Lee’s Swingtet, featuring Ali Affleck, performing the songs of Peggy Lee, Annette Hanshaw, Cleo Laine and Fats Waller.
'The band are all fine professionals, each taking their turn in the spotlight with skilled solos and riffing cheerfully around their ensemble parts. For me though, the night really hits its swing when the Swingtet’s vocalist Ali Affleck takes the stage for a range of Billie Holiday classics. She has a beautiful tone, whether in up-tempo numbers like ‘Of Thee I Swing’ or sadder, slower tracks like ‘Stormy Weather’. What’s more, her stage manner as the frontwoman is impeccable.'
