Shirley Smart Trio @ Scarborough Jazz Festival

Scarborough Spa
South Bay, Scarbourough YOii2HD
Trailblazing cellist Shirley Smart performs music from her acclaimed album 'Long Story Short' at this delightful venue in North London. Drawing on a mixture of influences from 10 years spent living in Jerusalem, jazz and a strong classical training including studies with Raphael Wallfisch and Janos Starker, Shirley is recognised as one of the UKs most innovative string players. " Shirley Smart can now be considered one of the best improvising cellists in the UK" The Jazzmann "...some of the most inventive use of the cello I have heard for some time.." Kind of Jazz 'As a cellist-composer she morphs seamlessly from Stephane Grappelli like swing and Bird-like bebop...a charming kaleidoscope and jazzy showcase of her global folk music-inspired compositions' Jazzwise 'Intense, lyrical and full of energy....A thrilling range on technique on display...Smart's cello singing, snarling or pumping out bass lines....fascinating listening, and thought-provoking entertainment for the open-eared" The Arts Desk "Smarts playing is particularly remarkable….she readily demonstrates a wide range of techniques incorporating an understanding of improvisation drawn from a jazz background and her extensive knowledge of Arabic maqam..."

Cellicious!

Lauderdale House

Two cellist/jazz singers join forces to express their take on the world of standards, Latin, originals plus more. Kate Shortt, cellist, singer songwriter, cabaret artist/comedien-ne is known for her avant garde improvisations and off the wall humour. Rupert Gillett, multi instrumentalist, singer, composer and jazz bassist is also experienced in rock, blues and Eastern European styles. Sit back and enjoy this cellicious ride from bebop to the blues and Bach again! ‘...Shortt’s solo took the honours. It was an unusual but impressive juxtaposition of overtones, atonality and snatches of delicate folk melodies...’ Ian Mann Jazz reviewer ‘...The stand out performance came from Rupert Gillett. Great cellist with comical side and songs that were instantly playing in your head...’ Fiona Jarvis - Blue Badge Style
