Red Skies Trio (jazz)

Don't be put off going out on Friday the 13th of September by the superstition of bad luck because there's a fantastic trio booked for the regular Jazz Club night at the Under Ground Theatre. Vocalist Brigitte Beraha and pianist John Turville will be joined by saxophonist Bobby Wellins.

Veteran jazz musician Bobby Wellins has a fabulous career, making his first recordings in 1956 and still going strong! I saw him with the Andrea Pozza trio at the Under Ground in January 2012 and am sure this gig will be just as entertaining. The trio got together to record an album, also called Red Skies, which was launched at the Pizza Express Jazz Club in February this year. Red Skies draws on an eclectic range of music, from well-known standards and latin gems through to originals and contemporary songs and is currently available from www.jazzcds.co.uk. There's bound to be copies at the gig too! I chose the YouTube clip below from the Red Skies launch night and love Brigitte's vocals on this song.

Under Ground Theatre, Fri 13th Sep, 20:00.
Tickets £11, available online, by calling 0845 680 1926, or in person at the Box Office and the Tourist Information Office.
