JAZZ NIGHT PRESENTED BY THE ABRAM WILSON FOUNDATION
February 13 @ 7:15 pm - 9:15 pm£20
Welcome to Jazz night at the AllBright.
Having discovered jazz with the help of jazz education organisation, Tomorrow’s Warriors, guitarist Shirley Tetteh has continued to explore its rich heritage and tradition, citing influences as diverse as contemporary guitarists Gilad Hekselman and Julian Lage right through to jazz guitar pioneers Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery.
Shirley has performed with the likes of saxophonists Nathaniel Facey, Jason Yarde and Nubya Garcia, clarinetist Arun Ghosh, vibraphonist Lewis Wright, vocalist Zara MacFarlane and toured with Courtney Pine as part of the fourth Jazz Directors series in early 2018.
She is a member of septet Nerija (nominated for a 2017 Jazz FM Breakthrough Act Award), Brownswood affiliated Maisha and Casssie Kinoshi’s SEED ensemble. She also plays with Groundation and the legendary Jazz Jamaica.
Shirley has publishing and record deals with Lucky Number Music and is keen to explore the ways of combining jazz and left field pop, while forging ahead with bands Nerija and Maisha, who present high-quality original improvised music to a younger, wider audience.
