Hot Hot Hot!

We have been very lucky with the weather this summer in London but it still didn't prepare me for the heatwave in Tuscany.  I think one of the days the temperature hit 39 degrees celsius.  It was like being in a sauna... and I loved it!

I had a wonderful time performing with excellent local musicians playing in five different beautiful venues.  Daniele Gorgone (piano), Nino Pellegrini (bass) and Marco Simoncini (drums).

The Italian Quartet!  Enjoying a meal before our first gig in La Spezia.

The view whilst sipping an aperitif before the gig at Villa Trossi in Livorno.

The stage of our third gig on the bank of the Arno in Pisa.

The view from the stage at Argini & Margini in Pisa - magical

The Tennis Club in the park by the beach in Castiglioncello
was the setting for our 4th performance

The soundcheck before the final gig in the beautiful Villa Conti in Fauglia

Yesss!  I finally made it to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

And I just could resist doing a tiny bit of shopping.
This beautiful Italian handbag is so unique with interchangeable colours,
handles and accessories.  Bellissima!

Hope it won't be too long before I'm back in Bella Italia, but before then I will be at Boisdale in Canary Wharf this Saturday doing my Nina Simone & the Divas of Jazz show.  Hope to see some of you there!
