The popular music of the early 20th Century has an enduring appeal with many songs having been recorded numerous times by different artists over the years. The Minnie Fraser Quartet perform beautiful ballads, heart-rending blues and joyful, foot-tapping swing including familiar favourites and some less well-known numbers. The repertoire includes songs written by the great composers and lyricists such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Jimmy van Heusen and Hoagy Carmichael; with songs made famous by singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughan and Peggy Lee.
