Sophisticated Ladies of Jazz, the latest stage show from Australia's glamour girl of song, Rhonda Burchmore, is a tantalising feast of the songs of the greatest American jazz divas of all time - Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Julie London and Rosemary Clooney.

Backed by a jazz band comprising some of Australia's finest jazz musicians, Sophisticated Ladies of Jazz is a nostalgic saunter down memory lane, exploring the music and lives of the most famous female singers of the West Coast cool jazz scene of the '50s and '60s.

From the sweet and silvery voice of Ella Fitzgerald, to the sultry, smoky tones of Peggy Lee, to the smooth and sensual sound of Julie London and the distinctively unpretentious and richness of Rosemary Clooney, Rhonda glides effortlessly through a repertoire packed with the greatest jazz numbers of all time.

Stories and music from the four divas of jazz are skillfully woven into Rhonda's two hour show, presented in two parts. Peppered with 'nteresting trivia, stories and highlights of each singer's career, the show is uplifting and fun, poignant and touching, and above all, totally entertaining.

Rhonda's penchant for jazz came about from listening to the music of the 'Sophisticated Ladies of Jazz' on her mum and dad's old vinyl records.

"I just loved how each of these ladies delivered a song with such ease, and really sold a lyric. I also adored the vocal tone of all of these singers and maybe, just maybe, some of that vocal magic rubbed off on me," says Rhonda.

"I am thrilled to be able to channel these amazing ladies, sing some of the best songs ever written and deliver them with such a brilliant combo of jazz musicians," she said.

Throughout her career Rhonda Burchmore has made a distinctive impression on audiences with her dazzling dance steps, superb comic timing, effervescent personality and impressive voice, all of which come to life in this latest show.

The songlist for Sophisticated Ladies of Jazz is a quartet of memories and music that is still as vibrant and loved today as it was decades ago. Each step of the way, Rhonda breathes new life into each and every song from these truly sophisticated jazz singers.

Don't miss Rhonda's latest show, Sophisticated Ladies of Jazz. It's is the hottest ticket in town!
