Sarah Jane Eveleigh & Melbury Music plus Poco Loco on the Lunchtime Session:
Sarah Jane Eveleigh’s mellifluous, rhythmically assured vocals are always a treat. Here she is supported by the ever-popular Melbury Music Quartet with the wonderful Marianne Windham on bass (double), Martin Bazley on keys, Lester Brown on trumpet & Flugelhorn and Andrew Eveleigh on drums with special guest Alejandro Gonzalez on Latin percussion. Melbury Music perform regularly at the OSO Arts Theatre and other top local London venues and at various prestigious social events. Musically you can expect well-loved vocal numbers from a repertoire covering jazz, Latin & pop as well as some classic jazz instrumentals.
Poco Loco is a West London based quintet that takes its cue from the hey-day of hard-bop and soul jazz of the late 50’s and early 60’s. The line-up features the classic trumpet and tenor saxophone of Adrian Astor and Gerard Gregg-Smith plus the rhythm section of Huw Jones on keys, Adrian San Martin on bass and Hakan Yazici on drums. The line-up mirrors that of the one that was first popularised by jazz giants Horace Silver and Art Blakey. Poco Loco’s emphasis is on foot-tapping grooves across an eclectic mix of re-arranged standards and lessor known musical gems from the period.
