Jazz by Candlelight transforms Manchester's most beautiful venues into intimate Jazz Clubs, bathing the space in candlelight to provide the perfect backdrop for some sublime jazzy sounds. We seek out the best talent in the UK, who for this special edition will be playing a tribute to the works of Ray Charles & Nat King Cole.
Often referred to as "The Genius", Charles pioneered the soul music genre during the 1950s by combining blues, jazz, rhythm and blues, and gospel styles, and became one of the first black musicians to be granted artistic control by a mainstream record company.
Nat King Cole was equally as influential; he recorded over 100 songs that became hits on the pop charts, acted in films and on television, performed on Broadway, and even became the first African-American man to host an American television series.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a history lesson on two of the most acclaimed figures in the world of jazz.
