Happy that I’ve been invited to perform at this unusual jazz Festival! – now held in honour of its late founder Mike Durham.
The 4 day event is based around themes – so Thursday 5 November I’ll be rehearsing, then between 6 7 & 8 November I’ll be performing various sets with various bands – some of whom I’m familiar with, some of whom I’m looking forward to meeting: “The Blues” with Matthias Seuffert & Keith Nicholls / “Songbirds & Nightingales” with Duke Heitger & Martin Litton, and dueting with vocalist Janice Day / “Chicago South Side” with Thomas Winteler.
(Plus “Other sessions if and where needed” !!)
Previous guest vocalists have included wonderful Cecile McLorin Salvant (2010) … So should be fun! 🙂 especially if you love the classic 1920s-30s traditional style jazz.
