Tina May and Craig Milverton Trio

Print

Chy Cara, Carnon Downs, TR3 6LN

Date: Saturday 4th November
Time: 20:00

'The most expressive and technically gifted jazz singer on the UK scene'. Scotsman.

  • Tina May – vocals
  • Craig Milverton – keyboards
  • Ashley John Long – bass
  • Coach York – drums

Now considered “ the finest jazz vocalist ever produced by Britain " (Chris Allen), Tina was born in Gloucestershire, where she was influenced greatly by her parents jazz record collection, containing such illustrious composers and artistes as Duke Ellington and Fats Waller.
Tina’s new album ‘Café Paranoia’ - Tina May with the Andy Lutter Trio Sings Mark Murphy.

The album is collaboration between Tina the UKs premier jazz vocalist and leading German pianist Andy Lutter.

"Britain does harbour a young female performer who, at the moment, is achieving impressive maturity, and evidencing genuine empathy and understanding for the timeless and indefinable beauty of the artful popular song. She is Tina May".

Indeed, the London Observer's jazz critic Dave Gelly, in reviewing her ever lengthening number of CD's has long considered "Tina May has an unerring instinct for how to treat a song ", and is "that great rarity, a singer who enhances a song."

Tina's musical heart may well be rooted in the music of Waller, Ellington, Gershwin, and Monk, and the jazz tradition.

However, she is not a performer, who remains musically static, as she is a thoroughly modern twenty-first century artiste.

For this concert Tina May is supported by one of the South West’s outstanding trios led by pianist Craig Milverton - voted Jazz Pianist of the Year 2010.

“Considered as one of the finest jazz vocalist's the UK has ever produced." All Music Guide
"Superb tonal range, elastic phrasing, faultless diction and barrelfuls of individual style."
The Herald

Alison Rayner Quintet

Print

Lovedays, Quay Road, Charlestown

Date: Wednesday 22nd November 2017
Time: 20:00

Alison Rayner - double bass/composer / Deirdre Cartwright - guitar /
Steve Lodder - piano / Diane McLoughlin - saxophone / Buster Birch - drums.

‘The quintet’s multi-faceted pieces are full of delightful colour and detail – but for all their sophistication remain wholly accessible and unfailingly melodic.’

‘Rayner’s consistently melodic brand of contemporary jazz combines melody, texture and rhythm, skilfully blending the components together in a way that Pat Metheny might be proud of.

Indeed, Rayner’s writing frequently exhibits a similar gift for melody and her tuneful compositions are given an impressive breadth and colour by a gifted and well drilled band’.

‘There’s a joyousness about much of Rayner’s writing, the majority of which has its roots in personal experiences… there are moments of poignancy, nostalgia and regret but in the main Rayner’s music is a celebration, “A Magic Life” indeed’.  thejazzmann.com

“A gorgeous album synthesising mood, melody and the interplay between musicians totally at home with each other.” Jazzwise ★★★★

“…infused with the kind of heady imagination that transforms their resonances into a series of vivacious musical adventures.”
BBC Music Magazine ★★★★★

'Highly intelligible music, characterized by individuality, spirit and a sense of freedom.’ Val Wilmer.

Licensed bar and suppers available from 7.00pm

Tickets in advance :
Standard : £11.00   (£13.00 On The Door)

Dave O'Higgins Quartet

Print

Lovedays, Quay Road, Charlestown

Date: Wednesday 6th December 2017
Time: 20:00

Dave O’Higgins - tenor and soprano saxes / Graham Harvey - piano / Geoff Gascoyne – bass /
Sebastiaan de Krom - drums

Dave’s saxophone sound is highly personal and recognisable, with a clear sense of melodic development and adventure.

He has a wide palette from Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane and Joe Henderson through to Stanley Turrentine and Michael Brecker.

He has relentlessly pursued artistic and sonic exploration, and enjoys the learning process which is a constant advancing flow.

The Dave O’Higgins Quartet has been together for 5 years now with Sebastiaan de Krom (drums), Geoff Gascoyne (bass) and Graham Harvey (piano) - a band that is unashamed to swing and draw on blues and functional harmonies and the great tome of jazz vocabulary, eschewing fads and fusions.

“One of the most vigorously compelling tenor players on the UK scene, and on this wholly enjoyable, powerful album, he nods to the great saxophonists – Charlie Parker, Coltrane, Dexter Gordon chief among them – who so clearly influenced him, without unduly compromising his individuality; In the Zone  is archetypal O'Higgins: unpretentious, accessible, no-nonsense acoustic jazz addressed with skilfully controlled energy.”
Chris Parker reviewing In the Zone (Jazzizit)

“A stunning player in the neo-bop vein, with an apparently effortless flow of coherent ideas, beautiful time and a highly developed harmonic sense.” Jazz Guide

'Dazzling post-bop tenorist with a magnificent range and a dramatic turn of phrase'. The Guardian.
