Jazz at the Quay Arts Centre

Posted by Admin on 28 August 2007, 12:00 am

Phoenix Jazz Ensemble, with their superb vocalist NETTE ROBINSON will be appearing at the Quay Arts Centre on Tuesday 28th August from 8.00pm to 10.30pm with another free Jazz at the Quay session, where they invite musicians to bring along their instruments and join in the session.

Nette has recently released her first CD with Phoenix, called Isn’t It Romantic? and this is available from Waterstone's and the Quay Arts Centre. The album contains some of the smoothest tracks you will ever hear.

Phoenix Jazz was formed from a reincarnation of kindred spirits and the love of fine music, initially with ex-Plessey engineers Bill Wills and Mike Whitehead teaming up with Peter Trueman, who composes and arranges many of their numbers, and plays keyboard and flute. Soon afterwards Roger Mason, a saxophonist extraordinaire, joined them and with Nette’s sultry and flamboyant vocalising they are now capable of a most diverse range of jazz styles. With Nette having vast experience in the Jazz world and also playing keyboard and saxophone they are now a band of immense talent and well worth catching whenever you can.

Their first CD, Our Kind of Jazz, raised well over £600 for the IW Mountbatten Hospice, and is still available at the reduced price of £6. See the village website  http://www.northwoodvillage.org.uk/village/villagenews/945.aspx and IWJazz at http://www.iwjazz.co.uk/?type=page&content=25 for details of the band and to hear some sound samples.
