UK Jazz Radio chooses Fever for it’s No.1

Verona Chard’ s Fever album announced as CD of the Month for November 2010!

“One of the best versions of Fever I’ve ever heard…. wonderful voice and great instrumentalists” – Brian Soundy – UK Jazz Radio – May 2010

Verona’s debut album, FEVER is a magical mix of passionate sultry jazz and inspired vocal acrobatics, showcasing her ‘beautiful voice’ (The Scotsman) and unique take on jazz, blues, funk and original material.

Taking as its main theme and inspiration the words of William Shakespeare, FEVER features arrangements of music by John Dankworth, Galt MacDermot, Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, Humphrey Lyttelton, Hirsch and Kaplan, Elton John, Ann Ronell plus Cooley and Davenport.

Verona says:
‘I’m thrilled that the album has been chosen and with the support and enthusiasm it’s been greeted with. It was two years in the making and I’ve invested everything I have into it so to get such a positive reaction is just so exciting.
I’ll also be presenting a show on UK Jazz Radio called ‘Women in Jazz’. I love researching the material and finding works by lady instrumentalists and singers both known and not so familiar with to showcase on the programme and am looking forward to getting out and interviewing those behind the scenes that champion the wonderful world of jazz.’

An exciting combination of highly trained vocalist, actor and lyricist, Verona made her stage debut at the age of five. Growing up in Bath, she excelled in all things creative. She trained at the Royal Academy of Music and Trinity Laban, but whilst enjoying a highly successful career as a singer and actor, knew that jazz was her abiding passion. She made an impressive professional jazz debut alongside Humphrey Lyttelton when she invited to guest on his Sad Sweet Songs & Crazy Rhythms album in 2005.
