A jazz cabaret based on on the Hollywood songs of Friedrich Hollaender devised and performed by the Kate Westbrook / Mike Westbrook Duo.

First performed as part of a tribute to Hollaender's music at the Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, 1996.

A showcase for the zestful, powerfully dramatic vocal style of one of the UK's most individual singers, Kate Westbrook - her extraordinary impact is best savoured live."
Chris Parker - The Times

Kate Westbrook emotes quite superbly, conjuring up the sense of cabaret from little more than looks, smiles and opera gloves, and a quirky series of deeply expressive personae - A continuously enthralling evening.
Phil Johnson - The Independent

Mike Westbrook is a Master of jazz orchestration. He can suggest a carnival, a ballroom, or greasy back street with a few cunningly placed notes. The full effect is awe-inspiring.
Dave Gelly - The Observer
