A BIG THANK YOU for coming to hear Babelfish and Solstice perform @ Pizza Express Dean Street. It was surreal to finally be able to launch ‘Food for Thought’ - We now have CDs as well as vinyl which you can order here. (Pre-orders have now been sent ) https://solstice-music.bandcamp.com/album/food-for-thought
Big thanks to J to Z, Jazzwise and Jazz FM for featuring tracks from the album these past few weeks. This week, we’re chuffed that ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ is track of the week on Jazz Fm’s Dinner Jazz!
SATURDAY 20TH NOVEMBER @ THE PHEASANTRY
Barry Green, Brigitte Beraha & Alan Barnes
EFG London Jazz Festival
I am excited to announce that the next concert at Pizza Express will be as part of the London Jazz Festival at their Chelsea branch the Pheasantry on Saturday 20th November. Typically for the festival, tickets sell quicker than usual, so make sure to book while you can! It will be an honour to share the stage once more with the incredible Alan Barnes. Barry, Alan and myself played together before as a trio at the Loire Summer School so we know this is going to be special.
But first, this October a few gigs you are warmly invited to:
-Tuesday 12th: Upstairs at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, London: I will be singing some of my favourite beloved Brazilian music & more with the amazing John Turville on piano. https://www.ronniescotts.co.uk/performances/book/6791-upstairsronnies-braziliance
-Friday 15th: Wells Maltings, Norfolk: with Orenda, led by Josephine Davies (saxes/ flute) with Alcyona Mick (piano), this is a beautiful trio of mostly Josephine’s gorgeous compositions. https://www.wellsmaltings.org.uk/events/orenda/
-Wednesday 20th: The Lescar, Sheffield with Andre Canniere Band, great band great music, at this award-winning venue!
-Friday 29th: Vortex Jazz Club, London with Dave Manington trio featuring Ivo Neame on piano. This is a stripped down, intimate version of Dave Manington’s bigger ensemble. Our debut, don’t miss it! https://www.vortexjazz.co.uk/event/dave-manington-trio-1st-show/
Lastly, my solo album is out in a few weeks and I can’t wait to share it with you. To make sure you won’t miss it, please follow me on Bandcamp and you will be notified as soon as it is released. There will be a limited run of CDs as well, if like me you still think they are nice things to have! (Yes I still have a CD player).
Lots of love and keep warm!
