SpeakeasyTorquay Summer Jazz Sessions 19 July – 2 August


A/B Trio/ Sue Richardson, Allsion Adams Tucker


SpeakeasyTorquay are pleased to announce their first Summer Jazz Sessions. Three world class performances over 2 weeks, presenting contemporary jazz at its very best with artists from Canada, USA and the UK

We start on 19 July, with a the A/B Trio, three of Canada’s most in-demand performing and recording musicians performing inventive re-interpretations of standards as well as their own modern, original repertoire.

The second performance, on 27 July, is from trumpeter and vocalist Sue Richardson supported by The Matt Carter Trio. With Chet Baker and Clifford Brown as two of her main role models, her timbre is warm and full-bodied. “Her soloing evokes the generosity and exuberance of players from the swing era.” The Times

The final performance, on 2 August, is from US vocalist Allison Adams Tucker, California multi-lingual vocalist and international recording artist. “Tucker’s voice is a beautiful instrument – one that floats, flies, and seduces with its no-fuss delivery.” All About Jazz
