Friday, October 19th, 2018
Birmingham Jazz @ 1000 Trades
Birmingham, United Kingdom
With the success of her latest album ‘Burn the Boat’ (Two Rivers Records, 2016), ’One of the most memorable collections of self-penned songs you’ll hear this year’ **** (Jazzwise), and her previous album of songs from the Gershwin classic, ‘Porgy & Bess’ (F-IRE Records, 2014), ‘A magnificent achievement’**** (allaboutjazz.com), Fini Bearman has been making a name for herself on the UK Jazz scene as‘a true jazz artist’ (Londonjazznews), equally at home performing original music as well as interpreting classic songs. For this brand new project Fini is joined by pianist Tom Cawley (Curios, Acoustic Ladyland, Peter Gabriel), and bassist Calum Gourlay (Kit Downes), where they will be reimagining songs from the late, great songwriter of our time, David Bowie. In this intimate and exposing lineup they will be revisiting and exploring some of David Bowie’s most-loved songs, as well as delving into some of his lesser-known back catalogue.
