Tom Burlinson: Now We’re Swingin’
Presenting Australian star of screen and stage, Tom Burlinson, in his latest musical production,
NOW WE’RE SWINGIN’ – a sensational, swinging salute to the masters of the genre. Hot on the heels of the acclaimed theatrical production ‘Frank – A Life in Song’, which played highly successful seasons at premier venues around Australia, Tom has delved even deeper into the Great American Song Book to create Now We’re Swingin’.
This dazzling, energetic show presents a montage of swing classics by Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin and Frank Sinatra, through to the songs made famous by supercool swingers of the current era – Harry Connick Jr, Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams.
Tom has also included songs from Frank Sinatra, the man he says “was the greatest of them all”. All-time classics such as I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Summer Wind, That’s Life and Mack the Knife are featured in the Sinatra segment of the show.
Many of the arrangements in the show are based on originals by Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Quincy Jones and George Rhodes.
Accompanying Tom on stage will be a swing band, including some of Australia’s best jazz musicians.
“Tom Burlinson is sensational! His delivery makes one feel he is talking and singing directly to you”
The Adelaide Advertiser
