MUSIC: Emma Fisk & James Birkett play Venuti & Lang
Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang are the Italian-American duo who played hot violin and guitar jazz in the 1920s and 30s until cut short by Lang’s untimely death in 1933. Joe Venuti has been referred to as ‘the father of jazz violin' and was a leader in the development of jazz violin techniques and style, while his musical partner Eddie Lang is widely regarded as the first jazz guitar virtuoso.
A typical performance by Emma Fisk & James Birkett includes compositions by Venuti/Lang such as Cheese & Crackers, Sunshine and Black and Blue Bottom; jazz standards of the 20s and 30s; and specially composed originals that explore the duo's sound world. The music is interspersed with musical and biographical snippets that give audiences an insight into the lives and music of these two astonishing musicians.
