Wendy Kirkland Trio
Fresh from her August concert at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, pianist-singer Wendy Kirkland is consolidating her status as a force in British jazz, especially in the sector populated by “piano divas”, the title of the hugely popular début album which her quartet has been touring countrywide and still is.
Piano Divas (2017) was a blend of compositions associated with other female jazz musicians but without any hint of imitation. It was a way of bringing jazz piano-playing and jazz singing to bear on charts that ranged from the Jimmy van Heusen/Sammy Cahn tune “Come Dance With Me” to Ben Sidran’s “Be Nice” and included one original by her and one by her and her husband, guitarist Pat Sprakes. Dave Gelly in The Observer called the album “a very classy début”, and of her second album, The Music’s On Me (2019), called her “a terrific pianist and singer, assured and full of surprises”, giving both albums 4 stars.
Wendy will be performing her Nat King Cole homage, as updated recently by Canadian superstar Diana Krall, with her husband and long time collaborator Pat Sprakes on guitar, ably accompanied by stalwart double bass virtuoso Paul Jefferies, who continues to work with the UK’s finest artists
