|Bonington Theatre - with Kate Williams (piano), Oli Hayhurst (bass), Cosimo Keita (drums)|
It was wonderful to revisit "Spellbound Stories" after focusing on other projects for a while. It was my first time performing in Nottingham too. We had such a warm and enthusiastic audience - it was a real pleasure to share my stories with them.
Earlier in the month there was another debut - the first outing for my new project "Sweet Nancy". It's a show centred on the songs from the classic Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley album released in 1961. Tommaso Starace (sax), David Preston (guitar) and I performed it for the very first time at the excellent new monthly "E15 jazz sessions" at Stratford Circus. A wonderful space that's definitely worth checking out if you're close by.
We'll be performing the show once more at Verdi (Royal Albert Hall) on 17 November. We're on at 12 noon and it's free. See you there!
