Award-winner kicks off town jazz nights
Derbyshire Times - almost 6 years
NEW venture Chesterfield Jazz will open for business this month with a launch concert featuring award-winning saxophonist Tony Kofi. Chesterfield jazz musicians Wendy Kirkland and Pat Sprakes are driving the new project, which kicks off on Thursday, May 24, at Club Chesterfield, on Chester Street, and believe they’ve found a gap in the market. “There’s a thriving folk scene in the area but there isn’t anything for jazz,” said Wendy. “We know that people in the area like jazz. Every time I send out a mailing, people ask when we are next playing locally and I had to say that we weren’t.” Pianist and Hammond organist Wendy began her passion for jazz over 15 years ago, studying classical piano up to Grade 8 and then beginning tuition in jazz from some of the UKs top pianists – Kate Williams, daughter of guitarist John Williams, being one of them. Together with guitarist/double bassist husband Pat, she has played at gigs and jazz clubs across the UK including at the Edinburgh and Br...

Paloma Faith and the Guy Barker Orchestra, Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Gregory Porter featuring Jamie Cullum, Jazz Festival, Cheltenham
The Independent - almost 6 years
Two years ago, Paloma Faith and Guy Barker closed the Cheltenham Jazz Festival with an evening of lovelorn torch songs, Down at the End of Lonely Street. On her return engagement, Faith chose to debut the whole of her soon-to-be-released second album as the festival's first Artist in Residence, which also involved her booking (and duetting with) the veteran soul singer Candi Staton, and programming a pop-up cinema. If the 2010 performance had been a rousing if slightly nervy triumph, this time it was sensational. The venue was a hit, too – a circus Big Top, replacing the sonically challenged Town Hall – and Barker's superb arrangements for the 48-piece band created a jazzier, funkier and poppier sound that made the upbeat repertoire really swing and swoosh, aided by a sassy female backing trio.
