Sarah Jane Morris & Antonio Forcione - COLCHESTER ARTS CENTRE Sarah Jane Morris & Antonio Forcione- Just back from a hugely successful European tour, this unique musical pairing’s exciting repertoire ranges from Jazz & Blues to Acoustic Soul and Township. Famed for her association with the Communards in the mid-80’s, “Don’t Leave Me This Way”, Sarah Jane Morris has attracted almost as much attention for her politics as for her soul-driven voice. With numerous solo albums to her credit, and a diverse set of musical collaborations on record, film and stage, Morris continues to steer her unorthodox career to even greater heights. ‘A voice that can excite shivers of passion and delight….. soaring, swooping, sensual and sophisticated….. torch song, soul standard or smoky blues, the message remains constant ……human passion with a dazzling voice……’ Neil Spencer, The Observer. Hailed as the acoustic Jimi Hendrix, award winning guitarist Antonio Forcione is one of the most charismatic performers to come out of Europe in recent years. He breaks the mould with his inventive take on the genres of Jazz, Blues, Spanish, Brazilian, African and improvised music.‘ A performer of world class status, forceful and with an enviable technique, he takes the guitar to new levels of expression combining its melodic powers with dramatic percussive effects. Forcione boldly goes where no guitarist has gone before and the results are quite spectacular.’ The Stage
