Music, Meze & More with Thom Whitworth Trio
Thursday 18th, July
7:00pm - 12:00am
"World Class" - Humphrey Lyttelton describing Pat McCarthy on his radio show. Pat brought his Quartet to Peggy's in October, and we're delighted to welcome them back for our Saturday Night Classic Jazz & Meze Session.
Shannon Reilly is a vocalist of exceptional quality and her spellbinding performances have captivated audiences across the UK, and occasionally Japan and Paris. She has been singing since the age of five and grew up listening to Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day and Peggy Lee. Although she developed her style listening to these iconic singers, she is very much her own woman.She also sings in French and Portuguese.
Warren Jolly -Bass
Since graduating from Newcastle College of Music in 1989, Warren has been in constant demand as a session player and side man with some of the best known names in jazz and pop: including Kenny Wheeler, Andy Sheppard and Jim Mullen. He has also toured with Blur, Simon Webb and the Drifters.
Thom Whitworth -Trumpet/Guitar
Thom has won various accolades which include being the Perrier Jazz Awards semi-finalist and winner of the Kenny Baker Memorial Competition. It’s very unusual to find a player who is creative and fluent on two very different instruments: the trumpet and guitar. Undoubtedly a rising star on the jazz club and festival circuit. His influences include Miles Davis, Arturo Sandoval, Wes Montgomery and Pat Metheny.
"This is superb music that manages to pull off that difficult trick of having a broad appeal whilst still satisfying the jazz connoisseur." Gill Wilde - Jazz Promoter of the Year
