joining the UK’s Number One Swing Band “The Jive Aces” at just seventeen years of age, Dutch-born jazz singer Thisbe Vos has performed in musicals, clubs, festivals, national radio & television shows, and has toured over 30 cities in Europe and America.
She states that her inspiration comes from Ella Fitzgerald whom she considers her unofficial mentor. Thisbe draws inspiration for her music from her extensive travels - her first composition “Pordenone” originated on a train ride from Pordenone, Italy, on her way to Switzerland.
Thisbe's music ensemble is made up of veteran musicians with an average of forty years experience and includes several gold-recording artists; in her first album, which debuts six original “standards”, they bring the sound of traditional jazz to life.
Two years in the making, “Sophistication” brings to the Jazz Listener the contemporary sound quality demanded of today's productions while preserving the style that has made Jazz the genre par excellence of the sophisticated music lover.
