Here are some notable performances I did in 2021.
Marsden Jazz Festival 2021
Covid lockdown has been tough. But I am very grateful that performances are gradually coming back. I performed with Gary Crosby and Eddie Hicks in Gary’s trio at Marsden Jazz Festival in October. So great to be able to perform again.
BBC Radio 3 In Tune
Soon after that I performed with some young cats, Allexa Nava, Cassius Cobbson and Gary Crosby in a live performance at BBC Radio 3 In Tune. The feeling of performing live on radio is a bit nerve wrecking. You know that there are many people listening but you just don’t see them physically. We were all very happy with our performance.
In the same month I had the honour to perform at Jazz FM Awards ceremony, celebrating all the fabulous work of Tomorrow’s Warriors. The group consists of Soweto Kinch, Alexandra Topczewska, Romana Campbell, Daniel Casimir and myself.
2021 finished off with a huge concert at the Queen Elizabeth’s Hall in December celebrating the great work done by Tomorrow’s Warriors for the past 30 years. It was such a great day seeing many familiar faces, both young and mature (!). Once again I am very grateful to be included in this big family. A great way to complete a year indeed.
