London Jazz Festival 2011 - Countdown!

Only 8 days to go to the start of this year's London Jazz Festival!
I've got two performances during November's London Jazz Festival with Jonny Phillips on guitar (Southbank Centre @1pm on Fri 11th and artsdepot at 1pm on Sun 13th) and we'll be performing arrangements of songs by a wide range of artists including Tom Waits, Michel Legrand and the Beatles.  The only condition is that they must have a connection with or feature the name of a European city or country.  It's been fun choosing the songs and there are even a couple that we've written specially.  It's also going to be quite a challenge because I'll be attempting to sing in French and Italian.
At the moment, I'm frantically trying to finish lyrics for one of the new songs - yes, I know I've left it very late...   I'm also trying to choose my outfits for the shows.  I'm wondering whether to go for a burlesque-style corset but am thinking it might be quite difficult to breathe wearing it!
