‘Sarah Moule has a voice that inspires and comforts at the same time. The quality of her vocals makes you realise all is well in the jazz world.’ - Sammy Stein - SomethingElse.com
He’s right! Sarah does indeed have a very special singing voice (and speaking - she records talking books for children too). For more evidence of Sarah’s skill, let’s just say that she sang for six years with the John Wilson Orchestra and John Critchinson’s Tribute to Ronnie Scott band and she has performed with BBC Concert Orchestra and numerous ensembles from intimate duos to symphony orchestras. Husband and pianist Simon Wallace is a critically acclaimed pianist, producer and music director, having worked extensively for TV and film with Simon Bint, The Ruby Wax Show, Mari Wilson, Sinead O’Conner, London’s Burning and many many more. The dynamic musical duo will be appearing with long time drumming collaborator Paul Robinson and bassist Paul Jefferies.
There’s nothing quite like listening and watching jazz played live by great musicians and the hugely popular Italian ace saxophonist Tommaso Starace is one of the exciting exponents of the alto version of this instrument in Europe today. A regular at jazz clubs throughout Europe, Tommaso plays with edgy conviction and real passion. This show will celebrate arguably two of the most talented sax players in history - Julian Edwin "Cannonball” Adderley and Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker. Performing with Tommaso will be a trio of great distinction: Pianist Frank Harrison is an award winning musician who toured for 20 years with another immense saxophonist Gilad Atzmon and is now much in demand as a player with powerful harmonic language, paired with a beautifully delicate touch. Bassist Paul Jefferies can ‘lay it down’ with the best of them, but he also produces wonderfully melodic lines, all wrapped in a great sense of time and rhythm and finally drummer Paul Cavatiuti (http://www.paulcav.com/biography.html) is a brilliant time keeper and rhythmic wizard - great line-up and a great show full of be-bop and bluesy jazz.
This piano, double bass and drums trio will - we can assure - charm and excite your jazz earbuds! Leader Bruno D’Ambra arrived in London in 2000 as a young man, keen to discover a bigger jazz scene, armed just a rucksack, a small keyboard carefully packed in a cardboard box and £300 in his pocket (a parting gift from his late grandad) he quickly made his mark on the jazz scene where he’s been honing his craft for over 20 years with many of Britain’s best-loved jazz musicians. Bruno will performing a mix of jazz standards and music from his own album ‘Vesuviana’. On bass - Paul Jefferies, drumming for this auspicious occasion will be another brilliant Italian musician - Daniele Antenucci on drums.
