Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Elaine Delmar


Here is a sexy song by the great jazz singer Elaine Delmar.
Born in 1939 in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, England, Elaine Delmar is the daughter of late Jamaica-born jazz trumpeter Leslie "Jiver" Hutchinson and one of England's truly loved entertainers. Having made her debut as a pianist on BBC radio show "The Children's Hour" at the age of 13, she has gone on to balance a career as a solo performer on England's club circuit and appearances in musical theater productions. A member of her father's band, while still in high school she performed at United States Air Force bases in England throughout the late 1950's. She made her Broadway debut in the 1985 production "Goes to Hollywood", featuring music by Jerome Kern. She toured with actor/singer Paul Jones in "Let's Do It", celebrating the 100th birthday of Cole Porter, in 1991. Reuniting with Jones two years later, she appeared in a series of concerts, "Hooray for Hollywood", that featured songs from "Porgy & Bess", "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Top Hat". "By George, It's Gershwin", another Gershwin tribute, took Elaine on a tour of New Zealand in 1984, this being the first of many successful trips to the land of Kiwi's. Elaine has made numerous radio and television broadcasts and concerts singing with small groups, big bands and symphony orchestras around the world, starring with Michel Legrand, Stephane Grappelli, Andy Williams, Benny Carter and Herb Ellis to mention but a few. A great deal of Elaine's working year these days is spent touring the world, quite often working aboard some of the world's top luxury cruise ships. She believes these ships have become the new vaudeville. One of the high points of Elaine's working year is her annual engagement at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London. Having worked there once a year for the past sixteen years, Elaine still finds it one of the most challenging and stimulating of all the venues to work.
Enjoy Elaine's terrific style!
