“Singing with a big band grabbed my imagination early on. It is difficult for me to put into words how great it is when a big band is “carrying” you, especially when you also feel bound up in an intense exchange. The first time I really experienced that combination of feelings was during a performance with The Millennium Jazz Orchestra. Contact developed with Joan

He must have been totally able to put himself in my place. In any case, he managed to give me the right musical inspiration, because in all of these arrangements he has given me the freedom to really enjoy myself.”
