Sonya Veronica has requested that Ausjazz blog mention her performance on Friday night at Dizzy’s.

Ausjazz blog has yet to catch Sonya in performance, but the names Howard Cairns and James Sherlock are a great recommendation that this will be a gig worth attending.

Something We Know, which is a website everyone ought to know for all the jazz gigs around town, has this to say:

“Singing is Sonya Veronica’s first love and jazz is her second. With her distinct voice and passionate interpretation Sonya will be singing from well-known to obscure jazz standard to chanson française”.

ABC Jazz includes in her repertoire for the night Miles Davis’s Seven Steps to Heaven, Billy Strayhorn’s A Flower Is a Lovesome Thing and Piaf’s La Vie En Rose.

On the gig guide Something We Know listing, Veronica says, “We’ll be playing from bebop style Pennies From Heaven to Cole Porter’s You’ll Be So Nice To Come Home To and curve it to Piaf’s La Vie En Rose.
