Jazzlondonlive at Library feat. Martin Pyne + John Turville and Brigitte Beraha Duo

JAZZLONDONLIVE presents an evening of fresh, original and accessible jazz, featuring new sounds drawn from London’s vibrant jazz scene, hand picked from JAZZLONDONLIVE’s featured artists.

Come and join us at Library this January to ward off the winter blues with Martin Pyne playing an arresting, atmospheric solo set on vibraphone followed by a classy latin-infused duo set from vocalist Brigitte Beraha and pianist John Turville.

Martin Pyne‘s music draws on a wide range of influences – jazz, free improv, Americana, electronica and classical. Current projects include trio Busnoys with Jeff Spencer and Trevor Davies, an improvising duo with fellow vibraphonist Corey Mwamba, and a trio with reeds player Tom Ward and guitarist Ed Riches, as well as a duo with pianist Stephen Grew. His latest solo album, ‘Behind the Mist‘, launched in March 2017.

Brigitte Beraha is recognized as one of the most versatile and exciting vocalists on the UK jazz scene. Drawing comparisons with such luminaries as Norma Winstone, Flora Purim and Tania Maria, she has forged her own, very individual voice. With five albums to her credit, her most recent quartet album with Babelfish ‘Chasing Rainbows‘ received rave reviews. She recently released a debut album with super group Solstice(featuring Tori Freestone, John Turville, Jez Franks, Dave Manington & George Hart).

John Turville is one of the leading jazz pianists of his generation and has won multiple awards for his albums including MOJO’s #3 Jazz Album of the Year (2012), and ‘Best Album’ in the Parliamentary Awards 2011. He has toured and recorded throughout Europe and the Middle East with many renowned jazz and tango groups, including the Dave Binney/Julian Arguelles quintet, Tim Garland, the Tony Kofi/Alan Barnes Quintet, Karios 4tet, Asaf Sirkis Trio, Gilad Atzmon, Transtango, the London Tango Orchestra, Matt Ridley Quartet, Sabina Racheyeva, Andre Canniere, Maciek Pysz and Natacha Atlas.
