TRYPL + PAUL TOWNDROW TRIO

TRYPL + Paul Towndrow Trio – co-headline show

TRYPL is a UK based Latin Jazz outfit co-founded by the horn section consisting of Trevor Mires, Ryan Quigley and Paul Booth. This is new and fresh original music, penned by these three esteemed musicians, joined by powerhouses Alex Wilson (piano), Dimitris Christopoulos (bass), Edwin Sanz (percussion), Tristan Banks (drums) and Davide Giovannini (drums). Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Having had the immense pleasure of doing many recordings and gigs together as a horn section, it soon transpired that we had all spent many of our formative years as professional musicians touring and recording with many great salsa, boogaloo, and merengue bands, both in the UK and around the world. This, combined with our love for the latin-jazz idiom, the fast paced, high Impact and groovy seed for TRYPL was born. We were lucky enough to record at the legendary Wincraft studios, Steve Winwood’s private recording studio. It’s a beautiful location, set in the picturesque countryside of the Cotswolds and It provided the perfect, inspirational setting to make and record music along with some of our favourite musician friends. We each penned a few tracks. Some were written many weeks prior to the recording date and others were written between recording, eating, sleeping and drinking! “

TREVOR MIRES
Trevor Mires has been at the forefront of the London music scene for nearly 15 years. His credits are wide ranging. He has performed with, among others, George Benson, recorded and toured with multiinstrumentalist James Morrison, toured with Michel Le Grand, and recorded with Pat Metheny, Toots Thielemans and David Sanborn. Trevor was a member of jazz funk band Jamiroquai and Incognito, recording and touring with both for a number of years. Trevor is currently trombonist/arranger for Sir Tom Jones, and recently toured with Randy Brecker’s European Big Band, as well as recording with Radiohead and performing with Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, and recording and performing with Mark Ronson.

RYAN QUIGLEY
Ryan Quigley is one of the most in-demand lead and jazz trumpet players in the UK as well as a highly regarded composer, arranger and educator. His recent recording and touring work include dates with Quincy Jones, Ron Carter, Aretha Franklin, Harry Connick Jr, George Michael, Gregory Porter, Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams. As a lead and guest principal trumpeter he has appeared with the Grammy-winning Metropole Orkest, the Halle Orchestra, the Berlin Staatskapelle, the Royal Northern Sinfonia, the BBC Scottish Symphony and Royal Scottish National Orchestras, the RTE Concert and Symphony Orchestras, and the BBC Big Band. Ryan is a winner of a Parliamentary Jazz Award, Scottish Jazz Award and a UK Jazz Services Award.

PAUL BOOTH
Paul Booth is the in-demand sax man on today’s music scene. His ability to blend into any musical surrounding coupled with his talents as a multi-instrumentalist has led to him being regularly chosen to perform with many well-known artists. Paul has toured, performed and recorded around the world with The Eagles, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan, Carlos Santana, Van Morrison, The Allman Brothers Band, Bonnie Raitt, Chaka Khan, Kylie Minogue, Jamiroquai, Gregory Porter, Barry Manilow, Warren Haynes, Marti Pellow, Derek Trucks, Eddie Henderson, Geoffrey Keezer, Clarence Penn and Ingrid Jensen. He has worked with Incognito, Brand New Heavies and The BBC Big Band. Paul currently performs his own music with a number of different groups.

PAUL TOWNDROW TRIO

Paul Towndrow – Alto Saxophone
Alyn Cosker – Drums
Pete Johnstone – Organ

Paul Towndrow is an internationally renowned Glaswegian saxophonist & composer specialising in syncretic musical forms including the fusion of jazz with traditional celtic music, Indian music, and free improvisation. A stalwart of the Scottish jazz scene, he first performed at Glasgow Jazz Festival as a young musician over a quarter of a century ago. Since then he has released six solo albums and performed with a diverse and expansive range of artists from Benny Golson, John Scofield, and The Bad Plus, to Ben E. King, Martha & The Vandellas, Hue & Cry, and The Fratellis.

His most recent album ‘Deepening The River’ is a multi-genre extended composition serving to invite an exploration of a multitude of themes based around Glasgow’s people, history, and culture, specifically the role in the 17th Century of The Merchants House of Glasgow in campaigning for the deepening of The Clyde to enable the passage of ships, and to facilitate trade. The album was nominated for Scottish Album of The Year (SAY Award) in 2021.

Here he appears in a comparatively down-scaled, yet equally energetic trio format featuring two of his long term co-conspirators, Alyn Cosker (Drums) and Pete Johnstone (Organ). The group has performed at both sides of the Atlantic, including appearances in New York, London and beyond. A new album featuring the trio along with several star guests is in the pipeline, due for release in Autumn 2022.

BRIAN KELLOCK + FERGUS MCCREADIE

Brian Kellock solo piano & Fergus McCreadie solo piano – co-headline show

Brian Kellock is one of the UK’s finest and most in-demand jazz pianists, acclaimed for a distinctive, swinging style of playing which has classic jazz piano influences at its heart but can never be second-guessed.

For three decades, Edinburgh-born Kellock – who has led his own, hugely popular, trio since the late 1980s – has been the first-call pianist for visiting American jazz musicians who appreciate his swinging style, his skills as a sensitive accompanist, his spontaneity and his sense of humour. Warren Vaché, Scott Hamilton, Joe Temperley, Ken Peplowski, Herb Geller and Red Rodney are some of the diverse musicians with whom he’s played.

In recent years, he has headlined numerous concerts, recordings and tours with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, cemented links in Australia with trumpeter James Morrison, and in Denmark has appeared annually at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

His love of playing in a duo has resulted in regular tours with Tommy Smith, and celebrated recordings and concerts with Julian Arguelles, Liane Carroll, Carol Kidd and Sheila Jordan. Kellock’s many accolades include Best CD 2002 and Best Instrumentalist 2003 at the BBC Jazz Awards; Creative Scotland Award 2003, Herald Angel Award 2003, Jazz Musician of the Year 2011 at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards and Best Instrumentalist at the Scottish Jazz Awards 2019.

His 2019 album, Bidin’ My Time, was his first solo piano recording and his most recent release, Think About It (Thick Records), finds him reunited with Kenny Ellis (bass) and John Rae (drums) – the classic Brian Kellock Trio.

His latest project is a ‘tribute’ to the wonderful musician and raconteur Marty Grosz, featuring Ross Milligan on guitar and Roy Percy on double bass, which premiered at last years EIJBF to great acclaim.

Fergus McCreadie

“The most beautiful music you can hear in jazz at the moment” (Written in Music) is just one of the many compliments paid to pianist Fergus McCreadie on the release of his third album, Forest Floor.

Forest Floor, which went straight into the official UK Jazz & Blues charts at No 1 has underlined McCreadie’s status as one of the most exciting young talents in European jazz. His trio has brought audiences to their feet across the continent with music that charms in its melodiousness and creates a huge and genuine emotional response in the listener, and McCreadie’s solo concerts feature the same characteristics.

Influenced as much by the Scottish traditional music he heard growing up and still listens to avidly as by the jazz legacy he studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he graduated in 2018, McCreadie’s piano playing conveys flavours of bagpiping and images of the Scottish landscape he knows intimately. He is as dedicated to climbing Munros as he is to conquering the piano pieces that he practices to stretch his technique and improve his facility.

In solo concerts, without any pre-planning, McCreadie closes his eyes, places his fingers on the keyboard and transports his audience to the locations he sees in his imagination. He’s a painter, a storyteller and most of all, a communicator with a great warmth of personality and a direct connection to your soul.

“real personality … lucidly atmospheric … fire and virtuosity” – The Times
“Simply outstanding” – Jazzwise
“A virtuosic technique…high in emotional depth” – Tommy Smith
“Think Erik Satie running on Islay Malt rather than Absinthe” – The Scotsman
“Prodigious, cascading technique while communicating warmth of personality” – The Herald

Jazz At The Third Eye

Writer and researcher Stewart Smith shares stories and rare archival material from his Creative Scotland funded project Jazz At The Third Eye. Hear about legendary Glasgow concerts by Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Discover the connection South African jazz musicians had with Glasgow. And find out about a low-key jazz and poetry gig by a Hollywood star…

Opened in 1975, the Third Eye Centre transformed Glasgow’s cultural scene, bringing cutting edge contemporary arts to Scotland and providing a platform for local creatives. An accomplished pianist, founding director Tom McGrath ensured that jazz and improvised music were at the heart of the Third Eye’s programming. Working with Platform, the Scottish Arts Council jazz body, McGrath and his team brought the likes of Kenny Wheeler, Trevor Watts, Stan Tracey, Peter Brotzmann, Ken Hyder and David Murray to the venue, as well as South African jazz pioneers Johnny Dyani, Chris McGregor and Louis Moholo-Moholo.

Throughout the 1970s, the Third Eye was a hub for local jazz musicians, including McGrath, bassist George Lyle, drummers Nick Weston and Bill Kyle, pianist Jim Vincent, and saxophonists Gordon Cruickshank, Bobby Deans, Tony Gorman, and John Longbotham. In the 1980s, a new generation of musicians regularly played the venue, and from 1987, it became a key venue for the Glasgow International Jazz Festival, with concerts by avant-garde legends Fred Frith and John Zorn, Lol Coxhill and Maggie Nicols.

Thanks to Tom McGrath’s early adoption of video technology, we have a substantial archive of performances from the Third Eye and its sister venues. Highlights will be shown as part of the talk, alongside responses by contemporary Glasgow-based musicians.

Stewart Smith is a writer, broadcaster and academic specialising in jazz, improvised and experimental music. He is a regular contributor to The Wire, Bandcamp Daily, We Jazz, The Quietus, The List and Tribune, and presents Jazz Police on Repeater Radio. Recently, his focus has shifted to production and promotion. In 2021, he produced the Creative Scotland funded archival project Jazz At The Third Eye, sharing archival material and commissioning new works relating to Glasgow’s pioneering multi-arts space of the 1970s and ’80s. He teaches contemporary jazz and improvised music at Newcastle University.

Debut album Start Clanging Cymbals [“Hard to classify and even harder not to love”-Uncut/“Ambition and self assured daring”-MOJO] took William J. Stokes and twins Ellie and Imogen Mason across Europe and the UK, touring extensively and drawing fans like iron filings to a magnet as they went with their chaotic, visceral and euphoric live shows.

Now they are back with second album WRITHING!, which has already gained notable praise [“Exemplary” -The Guardian / “One of the underground albums of the year” -Loud And Quiet / “One listen won’t nearly be enough” -Electronic Sound]. Featuring a majestic vocal from The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne on ‘Necrofauna/The Garden Of Eden’, plus a piece written using a machine that converts pollution data into sound (‘Miasma Field Modulator’), in WRITHING!, Voka Gentle peel back the curtain on a whole world of their own making – chaotic, euphoric and full of sadness. Avant-garde pop, krautrock, softcore guitars, whirring electronica, recurring dreams, techno-inspired noise and ecological dread, delivered with a sobriety that cuts through to the most devastating nerve ending.

THE MILK CARTON KIDS

In association with Regular Music

The Milk Carton Kids return to the UK and Europe for the first time since the 2018 release of their Grammy®-nominated album “All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do”. The new project marks the first time that acoustic duo Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale have brought a band into the studio with them. On this short tour, songs new and old will be played by the duo without accompaniment.

Since their last studio album, “Monterey” (ANTI- 2015), life has changed dramatically for The Milk Carton Kids. Pattengale has moved to, and is now producing records in Nashville. Ryan is now the father of two children and works as Creative Director on “Live from Here with Chris Thile,” the reboot of “A Prairie Home Companion.” A break from years of non-stop touring, Ryan says, has yielded “space outside of the band that gives us perspective on what the band is.”

But it’s not just the addition of the band here that creates something new. National politics left Ryan feeling disoriented and mournful. Pattengale’s relationship of seven years ended, and he found himself unexpectedly needing surgery for cancer. (He is cancer-free now, and accidentally broke his cigarette habit in the process.)

Though they didn’t approach the new album conceptually, a theme of shattered realities began to emerge out of the songs that sparked to life. Recent events provided a bruising background for the record, yet the project is somehow bigger than any personal grief. Two-part harmonies ride acoustic guitars high above the haunting landscape created by the presence of the band, as if Americana went searching for a lost America.

“There are only so many things you can do alone in life that allow you to transcend your sense of self for even a short period,” Pattengale says. “I’m the lucky recipient of a life in which for hundreds of times, day after day, I get to spend an hour that is like speaking a language only two people know and doing it in a space with others who want to hear it.”

The War And Treaty

In association with Regular Music

Since forming in 2014, The War And Treaty have amassed a following as eclectic as their sound itself, a bluesy but joyful fusion of Southern soul, gospel, country, and rock-and-roll. Known for a live show nearly revival-like in intensity, the husband-and-wife team of Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Blount-Trotter endlessly create an exhilarating exchange of energy with their audience, a dynamic they’ve brought to the stage in opening for the legendary Al Green and touring with the likes of Brandi Carlile and Jason Isbell. So when it came time to choose a title for their forthcoming sophomore album, The War And Treaty quickly landed on Hearts Town—the Nashville duo’s adoring nickname for their ardently devoted fanbase.

“Hearts Town is a neighborhood strictly made up of people who all share the same kind of heart: hearts that love, hearts that heal, hearts that don’t see division,” says Michael. “There’s all different types of people within that neighborhood, but they’re still somehow all working together—which is exactly the kind of town we want to live in.”

Their full-length debut for Rounder Records, Hearts Town arrives as the follow-up to 2018’s Healing Tide, a widely acclaimed effort that recently saw The War And Treaty named Emerging Act of the Year by Americana Music Association. Mainly recorded at Blackbird Studio and featuring appearances by such esteemed musicians as Jason Isbell, Jerry Douglas, and Punch Brothers guitarist Chris Eldridge, Hearts Town was produced by Michael and co-produced by Tanya and the duo’s longtime guitarist Max Brown. And while the album unfailingly harnesses the thrilling vitality of their live set, each song spotlights The War And Treaty’s heart-on-sleeve storytelling and poetic simplicity with greater impact than ever before.

True to the unbridled spirit of The War And Treaty, Hearts Town opens on “Yearning,” a powerful introduction to the album’s narrative of loving without limit. Driven by a particularly stunning vocal performance from Michael, the track speaks to the tremendous struggle in overcoming emotional baggage. “‘Yearning’ is about me and Tanya trying to break free from the drama of past relationships,” says Michael. “When we got together, we both were divorced, so we had to make that decision to wake up every day and say to each other, ‘I’m going to love you,’ instead of just holding onto that old hurt.”

In its tender reflection on life’s most urgent questions, Hearts Town turns to the subject of death on the darkly charged but undeniably hopeful “Beautiful.” Graced with Tanya’s operatic vocal work and a smoldering guitar solo from Isbell, “Beautiful” looks back on the final days of Tanya’s mother, Judith May Blount. “One day I was by her hospital bed and I noticed that her legs and feet were ashy, so I decided to lotion them up,” Michael recalls. “She was a very private lady and ordinarily would never have let me do that, but in that moment she told me all these beautiful stories about her feet and why they looked the way they looked. It made me realize that death can be beautiful in its own way, because now the suffering’s over.”

On “Five More Minutes,” Hearts Town shifts into a much brighter mood, bringing the stomp and swing of classic soul to a carefree celebration of surrendering to love. “That song’s saying, ‘If I just have five more minutes to love you, it’s going to be the best damn five minutes of my life,’” Michael explains. Though that lighthearted tone returns on tracks like “Jubilee” (a stripped-back bit of romantic reverie), Hearts Town achieves a pensive complexity on its title track, a sprawling and symphonic piece partly sparked from Michael’s experience as a wounded warrior who served in the Iraqi War. “Writing that song, I was thinking about all the times I was dealing with my PTSD and my depression and thought I was all alone, and how calming it is now just to know that Tanya’s there beside me,” he notes. With its lilting string arrangement and cascading guitar work, “Hearts Town” ultimately transforms that personal story into a universal sentiment, attesting to the extraordinary power in lifting one another up in difficult times.

In songs like “Hearts Town,” Michael and Tanya’s vocal interplay takes on an intimacy that’s often sweetly akin to listening in on a private conversation. But despite the deep sense of communion that infuses their music, the two hail from wildly different backgrounds. Originally from just outside Washington, D.C., Tanya discovered her exceptional vocal skills at a young age and pursued a career in music and acting. Meanwhile, Michael grew up in Cleveland and D.C., spending part of his childhood in homeless shelters and later enlisting in the U.S. Army. While stationed in one of Saddam Hussein’s palaces several years after 9/11, he gained access to a piano and instantly captivated his fellow troops with his formidable vocal presence. Promptly tasked with writing and performing songs in memoriam to his unit’s fallen soldiers, Michael cultivated a distinct songwriting voice that he further developed upon returning home.

Soon after sharing the stage at a music festival, Michael and Tanya began making music together, eventually marrying and forming The War And Treaty. With their debut EP Down to the River arriving in 2017, they released Healing Tide in August 2018 and earned immediate praise from outlets like NPR, later landing on Rolling Stone’s list of the 40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018. The following year, The War And Treaty bolstered their reputation as a phenomenal live act by appearing at leading festivals around the country, in addition to inking their deal with Rounder. And at the start of 2020, the duo won over new fans by taking the stage at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, performing alongside icons like Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Gary Clark Jr., and Common in a tribute to Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich.

As their fanbase continues to expand exponentially, The War And Treaty feel more and more inspired by the Hearts Town community and its boundless potential for mutual uplift. “This is a place where everything that is broken can be fixed,” says Michael. “It’s a world where racism can be erased and where we don’t live in our selfishness, but instead always empathize with others. A world where we encourage one another and pick each other up, and we feed the hungry and we clothe the naked. Hearts Town is a place where you can come broken and open, regardless of your past, and find love just like we have.”

On the final track to Hearts Town—a slow-building, piano-fueled epic titled “Take Me In”—The War And Treaty drive home their impassioned plea for unity in times of division. “We were seeing so much anger in the world as we were making this album, so we wanted to give people something that told them, ‘Stop looking for the next Dr. King or Malcolm or Mother Teresa, and start looking for the first you,’” says Michael. Along with delivering a potent message of empowerment, “Take Me In” closes out Hearts Town on a beautifully warm and generous note. “Right now a lot of people are feeling so deeply engulfed in pain and surrounded by negativity, and sometimes you just need to hear that you’re good,” says Tanya. “That’s the whole idea behind Hearts Town: no one’s trying to change what you think or how you talk or anything else about you. You’re just fine the way you are.”

James Taylor Quartet

James Taylor Quartet

James Taylor, one of the great British instrumentalists of his generation, has taken his trademark howling Hammond sound to the masses for over 25 years; still famed for its upbeat, energetic live shows… with no sign of slowing down. The band’s relentlessly entertaining tunes take inspiration from the rare-groove style funk, and boogaloo funk of the 60s and 70s and, the band is, without a doubt, one of the most important jazz-pop crossover outfits in British live musical history today.

After the collapse of mod legends The Prisoners in the 1980s, and before moving to Sweden, James recorded some demos with brother David on guitar, the bass player from The Prisoners, and a drummer from down the road… and thus The James Taylor Quartet was born. From tiny acorns mighty oaks do indeed grow, and it wasn’t long before the first single, Blow Up, had been released, the band were in the studio rehearsing for the Mission Impossible EP, gigs were booked, and the late great John Peel was offering a session.

Skip forward 25 years and JTQ has evolved into one of the most exciting and well respected touring bands in the UK. With numerous albums to its name, the band’s recorded output is not to be scoffed at. ‘Prolific’ is an understatement, with albums touching genres as diverse as jazz, funk, soul, rock, and even rap, not to mention a handful of library albums in between. Each album is an absolute must for any Hammond fan: James’ playing providing a solid and accomplished lead as always. Live, the band is explosive, with a breathtaking, diverse unmatched back catalogue.

JTQ’s fired-up signature tune, The Theme from Starsky and Hutch, cemented its reputation as master of the jazz-funk-r’n’b workout; 60s spy themes, psychedelic and free-form jazz all added something to the band’s distinctive sound. Originally playing the Hammond B3 organ in the UK mod revival band The Prisoners, James Taylor formed his own quartet, and began playing music similar to the rare-groove jazz-funk then in vogue around London. By the early 90s, that movement had spawned acid jazz, and JTQ found itself at the forefront of a vibrant young club scene. The first single, Blow-Up, was released on the Re Elect The President label, a precursor to Acid Jazz. The band’s debut album, Mission Impossible, was released the following year, predominantly consisting of covers of 60s film themes such as Alfie, Mrs Robinson and Goldfinger. In the early 1990s, the single Love The Life reached the Top 40, and the accompanying album, Supernatural Feeling, settled in the Top 30 UK charts. After releases on Polydor and Big Life Records, JTQ returned to Acid Jazz, and In The Hand of The Inevitable remains the label’s biggest selling album to date.

In 1997 James had the chance to fulfil a dream when he was asked to score the theme tune to Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, the spy spoof starring Mike Myers and Elizabeth Hurley. JTQ’s Whole Lotta Live album was nominated for a MOBO award in 1998, and the following year James featured on Tom Jones’ duets album, Reload. James’ musical talent has been admired by numerous other acts: The Wonderstuff, Manic Street Preachers, The Pogues and U2 have all featured James and his distinctive Hammond sound on their albums.

Buster Williams Quartet + support from Rachel Duns

Buster Williams in 1975, he released his first album as a leader, Pinnacle. At 76, Williams might no longer be roiling the musical landscape in quite the same way.

He then decided to major in music at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, affording him opportunities to perform and/or study with Jimmy and Percy Heath, Jon Hendricks, Jaki Byard, John Hicks, Frank Foster and Ellis Marsalis. Becoming a first-call choice for veteran and emerging artists alike, Wilson was the subject of a New York Times profile “A Sideman’s Life”, highlighting his work with Ralph Peterson, Jr., Michele Rosewoman, Renee Rosnes, Marvin “Smitty” Smith, Joanne Brackeen, The American Jazz Orchestra, The Mingus Big Band, The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, Leon Parker, and Buster Williams’ Quintet “Something More”.

Lenny White
Leonard White III, better known as Lenny White (born December 19, 1949) is an American jazz funk drummer, who is best known for playing in Chick Corea’s Return to Forever and being one of the forerunners of jazz-rock/funk. White was born in New York City. A self-taught, left-handed drummer on a right-handed kit, he began his career in local groups, and playing regularly with Jackie McLean in the late 1960s. In 1969, he first appeared on Miles Davis’ historic recording on Bitches’ Brew and later in 1970 he played with Freddie Hubbard on Red Clay before joining Corea’s Return to Forever and Azteca in 1972. A year later, Azteca dissolved and he became dedicated to RTF. For five years, he recorded a number of albums with Return to Forever including the award winning No Mystery and Romantic Warrior.

In 1978, he switched to Elektra for his album Best of Friends, before forming the group Twennynine in 1979, with Carlo Vaughn (vocals), Jocelyn Smith (vocals), Skip Anderson (keyboards), Barry Johnson (bass), and Eddy Martinez (guitar). He later became one of the Jamaica Boys, a group also including Marcus Miller (bass) and Dinky Bingham (vocals), and worked with all-star groups Echoes of an Era and Griffith Park.

White has played with many of the greatest jazz musicians, including Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw, Gato Barbieri, Gil Evans, Jaco Pastorius, Cyrus Chestnut, Michel Petrucciani, Wallace Roney, Ron Carter, Geri Allen, Carlos Santana, Kenny Garrett, Bobby Hutcherson, Curtis Fuller, Chaka Khan, Larry Coryell, Victor Bailey and Stan Getz. Early in 2008 Istanbul Agop released the new 22″ Lenny White Signature Ride. The Istanbul Agop Lenny White Signature “Epoch” Ride was developed via a collaborative process between Lenny, master Cymbalsmiths in Istanbul, Turkey and Istanbul Agop’s product specialists in The United States. According to certain sources, the ride is heavily inspired by a ride that was given to Lenny by the late fellow drummer Tony Williams. The cymbal is made of B20 bronze and features unique hammering and lathing techniques which give the cymbal a dark, dry sound. Lenny White has reunited with former members Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, and Al Di Meola to form the US.

Anita Wardell Trio

Travels – A musical Journey, sharing stories and experiences of love and life through jazz standards and originals.

Anita Wardell – Voice

Malcolm Macfarlane – Guitar

David Bowden – Bass

Born in Guildford, UK, Anita moved to Australia with her family as a child. Anita’s formative years were spent soaking up the Rodgers and Hammerstein and Cole Porter classics. She also explored her father’s collection of big band albums by Duke Ellington, Count Basie and many more.

During her teens, she started to get to grips with the complexities of modern Jazz when she discovered Clifford Brown, Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. At the same time she learned her vocal craft from greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Mark Murphy, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, Jon Hendricks and Eddie Jefferson and many more. After attending secondary school she completed her degree in Music at the Adelaide University. In 1990, Anita relocated back to the UK where she continued studying at the Guildhall school of music and drama.

In 1997 Anita was invited along with Dee Dee Bridgwater and Kurt Elling to take part in a documentary on Ella Fitzgerald for Ovation Television. She was interviewed extensively on Ella’s Scat Style and demonstrated live on the show.

Anita’s recording career began in 1995 with her CD, Why do you Cry? featuring pianist Liam Noble.
In 1998 she released Straight Ahead with international star pianist Jason Rebello. Japan’s most popular jazz publication, Swing Journal, gave its endorsement, writing, “she’s the real thing who can fluently scat and sing vocalese!”

Her longstanding musical relationship with pianist Robin Aspland started with the release of Until The Stars Fade in 2001 also featuring the exciting US drummer Gene Calderazzo and Jeremy Brown on bass. Jazzwise Magazine called her “energetic and inventive” while The Guardian proclaimed her “a model of the Jazz singer’s art”, highlighting her clarity, improvisational skills and emotional resonance.

In 2004 she teamed up with tenor saxophonist, Benn Clatworthy, and recorded If You Never Come to Me (2004). Anita was signed to Proper Records in 2006 and recorded Noted (2006).

Anita received the prestigious BBC Jazz Award for Best of Jazz category in 2006 and a British Jazz award for Best Vocalist in 2013. This, coupled with the release of The Road has propelled Anita into the major artist arena. She has performed with many wonderful artists including Richie Cole, Ulf Wakenius, Bill Carruthers, Jim Mullen, Norma Winstone, John Di Martino, Martin Wind, Matt Wilson and Art Hirahara. She has also been a guest on many local and international recordings.

Anita Wardell, is noted for her mesmerising and captivating vocal improvisations and vocalese lyrics to instrumental solos. Anita is a musician who uses the voice as her instrument, displaying precision and agility, mixed with heartfelt emotion.

“The Road” 2013 showcases Anita’s agility and precision through a voice that soars like a finely tuned instrument. Pianist and long time collaborator Robin Aspland’s inventive re-workings of standards such as “You’re My Thrill,” “Surrey With The Fringe On Top” and “Without A Song” leave room for some exciting and swinging improvisations – whilst Stevie Wonder’s “Superwoman,” Bobby Hutcherson’s “Mirrors” and Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays’ “Travels” show a more contemporary side of Wardell”

Anita has been spending time in Australia from 2018-2022. Whilst living in Adelaide she has had numerous teaching posts including Jazz Vocal Lecturer Adelaide University and Vocal teacher at Tabor College of Higher Education. During her stay she has toured South Australia, Sydney and Melbourne with Australian jazz Musicians and appeared at the 2019 New Caledonia Jazz Festival with Jazz Organist Michel Benebig and Pianist Nicholas Arias.
