News from our partners Shropshire Music Trust
Two jazz giants, Chris Garrick and David Gordon, with a mix of choice standards, bebop classics, beautiful Latin American melodies and some originals, are at Wem Town Hall on Friday 7 February 2020 at 7.30pm.
Kate Hogwood, Director of Shropshire Music Trust, said:
“Jazz Review said of their debut “Paper Jam” CD: “Performing live is very much their natural habitat and this engaging series of musical conversations and dialogues cover an impressive musical and emotional range, embracing a wide variety of moods and musical styles while retaining a genuine sense of élan and joie de vivre!” “
Having met Jaco Pastorius, Olivier Messiaen, Nigel Kennedy, and Stephane Grappelli before the age of 10, has gone on to forge his own style which also reflects his contemporary interests. He has worked with artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Biréli Lagrène, Dolly Parton, All About Eve, Van Morrison and Brian Ferry and leads The Budapest Cafe Orchestra. He is widely recognised, both by the jazz and classical worlds as the country’s leading jazz violinist.
Studied maths and logic before embarking on a career as jazz pianist, harpsichordist and composer. Regularly commissioned by festivals and fellow musicians to compose, he also tours and records with his own international jazz trio, whilst gracing concert halls around the world as harpsichordist with top orchestras and soloists.
