“Now or Never ”CD from Ava to be launched at two exclusive party’s in London this spring. The first at The Prince Edward in Bayswater on Sat 13th Feb 2016.
Ava’s new cd is titled ‘Now or Never’ and her many fans are so glad it’s now! This eclectic collection of Ava’s favourites ticks all the boxes and is loaded with heart and soul.

This is a performer in her prime. All the ecstasy (and agony) of achieving critical success on the London circuit over the past twenty years is here. You can feel the passion and taste the experience on every track of this knockout set.

You’ll hear echoes of Bessie, Billie, Etta and Ella but be assured this is Ava herself – and she’s in total control. She delivers her choices with an intimate warmth, a purity of voice and a clarity of diction. But most of all with a heartful of life and masses of soul.

Backing Ava is her magnificent band made up of London’s finest with standout performances from Aled Thomas (piano), Adrian Cox ( Alto sax/clarinet), Tom Fry (bass), Julian Fenton (drums) and the ever-rocking BlueTown Records Horns Section. The mix is magical and moves from the full-on big band swing of Every Day I Have the Blues to the sparse tension of Don’t Explain and Body and Soul.

It’s been a long time coming but this is one to savour. Ava’s been around too long to say a star is born (acclaim came some time ago) but what we hear now is a star reaching full maturity. All the better for the waiting.

The CD will also be available at the exclusive launch parties this spring in advance of general distribution.
The first launch party is at the Prince Edward in Bayswater on Sat 13th Feb 2016. This is a party not to be missed. Tickets from The Secret Louche Lounge :
Next party is at LeQucumbar Battersea Wednesday 23rd March 2016.

For immediate release
Friday January 15th 2016
