The magic that was Colbourne Ave is reborn at Leadbelly with the On a Sunday series of jazz concerts, launching with the duet from those who put Colbourne to bed for the last time. Enjoy the cozy vibe of Colbourne Ave in the sophisticated ambience of Leadbelly, On A Sunday night.
Virna Sanzone & Phil Stack have been collaborating for years - Phil has played in Virna's trios and quartets, Virna has sung with Thirsty Merc. Both of them have spent their careers exploring and improvising, pushing standards into unusual shapes, stripping pop songs back to the simplest nuance, performing rock and pop and funk with a musicality rare in those forms. Drawing from Virna's deep knowledge of vocal traditions and Phil's atmospheric heights of jazz and rock, the duet allows them the freedom to take the music anywhere.
