Awesome gig the other day (21 Oct) at The Ivy Arts Centre at University of Surrey in Guildford playing Coltrane’s great gift to humanity, A Love Supreme with my long time spar and ALS exemplar, Denys Baptiste (tenor sax), and the stunning Benet McLean (piano) and Eddie Hick. Such a privilege to play this deeply spiritual music with such fine musicians.
The young musicians of Nérija make me soproud. Feels very special to see them grow up through our Tomorrow’s Warriors Young Artist Development Programme, and then see them playing at major festivals, and on the BBC! Your hard work is paying off, ladies. Keep rising! Peace and love.
If you couldn’t make it to our show in Glasgow at the end of June, tune in to BBC Radio 3 Jazz Line-Up at 6.00pmonSaturday 12 July. We had a great time at the Glasgow Jazz Festival and it was great to catch up with our friends north of the border.
Don’t panic if you can’t tune in on the 12th, as the recording will remain on the BBC iPlayer for seven more days afterwards. Enjoy!
