Bari-tones

By day he’s a barrister at 10 King’s Bench Walk. By night, Orlando Gibbons sheds his lawyer’s gowns and emerges as “the most stunning jazz singer” (at least according to a mate he does).

Gibbons’ talents were on show last Tuesday (6 July) at the Middle Temple Garden Party. Gibbons’ second CD, Days of Wine and Roses, is out next month, and was being distributed on the night by two charming young ladies. Meanwhile, the blazered Gibbons, champers in hand, set a suitably elegant tone for the bash. Nice.
