Brilliant Corners Jazz Club - Tuesday May 15th


Recommended Posts

Brilliant Corners Jazz Club - live Jazz night @ the White Lion (3rd Tuesday of EVERY month!)


A local jazz night giving the stage over to a whole host of local musicians. Expect beautiful ballads right through to burning Be-Bop; meaningful Mainstream to mad Modal; furious Funk to the frightfully Free; lively Latin to luscious Lounge; and classic Cool through to the curiously Contemporary!


This month at the Brilliant Corners Jazz Club we have the amazing talents of vocalist and songwriter Sally Doherty. Sally has composed music for various BBC productions, TV and radio, as well as several albums of her own material. She has a passion for the recordings of Chet Baker, João Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto performing Jobim songs, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan and Julie London as well as admiring the songwriting and voices of Scott Walker, Jacques Brel, Tom Waits, Sandy Denny and Nick Drake. Sally is currently playing with pianist Paul Kilvington; together they have recorded a collection of songs including some original compositions and some interpretations of unusual Latin American songs as well as jazz ballads and latino folk songs. This huge mix of influences and inspirations guarantee that it will be an incredibly interesting night of fantastic music - there promises to be something for everyone.


We are also very happy to welcome back guitarist Jamie Taylor who has been described as "enormously impressive" (Jazz UK) with "an uncanny ability" (Just Jazz Guitar), although what ability they were describing is unclear. He does a mean Buster Keaton impression which truely is uncanny - sounds just like him! Brilliant Corners regulars, Graham Jones and Johnny Hunter, will once again be providing the double bass and those circular things that are hit with bits of wood to go "ba-dum-bum-tsssch".


Get there early to avoid the disappointment of getting there late.
