Hey everyone, this is a free entry gig on Monday 16th October from 8pm at the Junction Jazz Bar, Brixton/Loughborough Junction in London which is run by local jazz musicians. This night will feature new compositions I’ve been writing for piano trio, and I’ll be joined by the wonderful London-based talents John Turville (piano) and Amy Baldwin (double bass).. They’re both amazing musicians, hope some of you can make it along to join us.
John Turville is one of the leading jazz pianists of his generation, and has won multiple awards for his two trio albums including MOJO’s #3 Jazz Album of the Year (2012), and ‘Best Album’ in the Parliamentary Awards 2011. He also won ‘Best Instrumentalist’ in the 2010 London Jazz Awards and the 2009 PRS Promoter’s Choice Award, and was a semi-finalist in the Martial Solal Jazz Piano Concours in 2010. He has toured and recorded throughout Europe and the Middle East with many renowned jazz and tango groups, including the Dave Binney/Julian Arguelles quintet, Tim Garland, the Tony Kofi/Alan Barnes Quintet, Karios 4tet, Asaf Sirkis Trio, Gilad Atzmon, Transtango, the London Tango Orchestra, Matt Ridley Quartet, Sabina Racheyeva, Andre Canniere, Maciek Pysz and Natacha Atlas.

She keeps herself busy by playing a wide variety of music including, jazz, musicals, orchestral work and cabaret shows. She has performed with many of the ‘giants’ of British jazz including Bobby Wellins, Liane Carroll and Kenny Wheeler as well as working with such Internationally acclaimed stars as Imogen Heap and the great George Benson.
