      Description hide

      Coming out of sources as diverse as big band swing and nightclub tristesse, "Bar Utopia" offers a somehow satirical reflection on the world of entertainment. Starting out with an overture by an unaccompanied saxophone quartet, this big band cabaret out of nowhere offers a humorous tour-de-force covering dixieland, torch songs, late-night ballads and the blues along with solid big band sounds provided by the Mike Westbrook Orchestra, that famous reservoir of great British talent. Provided with fine song lyrics by Helen Simpson, Westbrook´s exhilarating music is not only a perfect vehicle for outstanding vocalists John Winfield and Kate Westbrook, but also includes colorful and unlikely features for instruments like accordion, cello, and vibes.
