A tribute to Elvis - from Boggie Woggie to Rock'n'Roll
About the concert
A Tribute to Elvis - from Boggie Woggie to Rock'n'Roll with The Jonny Boston Quartet (Amsterdam/London)
The music of Elvis Presley (Born 1935) holds in it all the elements of Jazz. The First influences of Gospel he heard in church as a child, and later the Blues, Country and Rock'n'Roll, itself a product of Blues and Boogie-woogie. Elvis fused all of these with electric guitars and in the 50's gave birth to a new sound: Rock'n'Roll, combining all of the above, and by the late 60's, he was styled "The King".
In this program, the timeless songs of Elvis will receive a Jazz and saxophone treatment, with songs such as "Crying in the Chapel", "It's Now or Never", "Don't be Cruel" and more performed by the magnificent Jonny Boston Quartet.
