Sept ’16 news: Anita Wardell with Robin Phillips Trio at Cambridge Jazz Festival

We’re really excited to announce that world-class jazz vocalist Anita Wardell will be joining the Robin Phillips Trio for a special vocal jazz performance as part of the Cambridge Jazz Festival on 21st November 2016.

The performance will take place at the newly refurbished Gonville Hotel in Cambridge and tickets can include a three-course meal with priority seating. The Robin Phillips Trio will include Jay Darwish on acoustic bass and Alex Best on drums.

At the performance the trio will perform some of their arrangements to kick things off. Then Anita will join the band for some solo numbers, before the vocalists end each set with duets such as the those that appeared on Robin’s 2014 ‘Sing. Play.. for Pleasure’ album.

There will also be a singers masterclass on Sunday 20th November where Anita and Robin will share tips and tricks learned over decades of jazz performance, as well as look at how singers can take more control in performances and become part of the band. Participants will also be able to try out these skills with the same trio that will be performing on the following evening.
