Brass Incorporated, Pato Fu, Birds 'N Brass, Laetitia Sadier, The Barbara Moore Singers and more.
This week on the show we shine a light on prolific composer, arranger and vocalist Barbara Moore. If that name isn’t all that familiar, Barbara’s work often went uncredited, perhaps because she had the audacity to be a woman working in a field dominated by men.
Barbara Moore has nearly 300 compositions to her name and wrote arrangements and sang on some absolutely iconic tunes from the 60s and 70s such as The Saint, At the Sign of the Swinging Cymbal, Bedazzled, I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, as well as recording several really beautiful library music albums throughout the 70s for de Wolfe.
Most of the music on this week’s show features Barbara Moore in some way but we do also manage to squeeze in another track from Brazilian band Pato Fu and another track from the new solo album by Laetitia Sadier.
