Bristol jazz this week Aug 11
No time to do a proper listing this week because of Brecon taking up the weekend (and then some), and very pleasurably too. I think It is fairly quiet around town. Here are a couple of easy to paste in things to be going on with. Feel free to add more in the comments…
ANDY SHEPPARD & DENNY ILETT QUARTET are at FRINGE JAZZ, Thursday 14th August at 8PM. Tickets £9.
Andy Sheppard – Sax, Denny Ilett – Guitar, David Guy – Double Bass and Dylan Howe – Drums.
After series of diary clashes – THEY’RE BACK !! A band ‘born’ at Fringe Jazz whose gig back in March created the biggest audience feedback and rave reviews we’ve had in our two years of gigs at The Bristol Fringe. NOT TO BE MISSED
Future Inns, Thurs 14th – Molly and the Kings:
Making tidal waves on the Bristol Jazz scene, Molly Miranda King is an extremely vibrant singer with a natural talent and unique tone, drawing on Soul and Gospel to enhance her distinctive traditional Jazz sound.
Since the age of seven Molly has owned a four track, allowing her creative imagination to run freely, constantly experimenting with harmonies and different vocal techniques and styles. As a result, she has developed an astoundingly acute ear, giving her perfect intonation and breathtakingly clear tonality.
Influenced from an early age by such Gospel greats as Lauren Hill and Whitney Houston, Molly has developed a unique voice full of soul which continues to grow with rich textures, drawing likeness from more modern artists such as Melody Gardot and India Arie.
Molly performs a range of songs from contemporary soul and classic R&B to stunning ballads with a modern twist and is complimented beautifully by George Cooper on piano, Sam King on drums and Mike Isaac on Bass.
(She’s also at the Canteen next Sunday…).
All for now. Back soon with a preview of the new season at St George’s.
