The London Jazz Festival starts on the 10th November, but the night before the fun commences Tori and Alcyona have a performance in a lovely venue in Wanstead, East London. Yet again it's another concert where the jazz will be accompanied by fine wine as 'The Larder' in Wanstead is an establishment that opens it's doors for a special live music event once a month along with the opportunity to try some of their fine wines in the process. So if you'd like to whet your appetite with a festival precursor gig, you can book tickets here - https://larderlondon.co.uk/whats-on/late-night-larder-wanstead-presents-evening-jazz-duo-tori-freestone-alcyona-mick-9th-november-2017/
Tori will be playing in the Clore Ballroom, Royal Festival Hall with the 'Interchange' dectet featuring a piece that she was commissioned to write and later in the festival at the Vortex with the London Jazz Orchestra (also featuring her duo partner pianist Alcyona Mick pictured above). Tori now proudly holds the first tenor chair in the London Jazz Orchestra so the London Jazz Festival gig at the Vortex will be the first of many more.
The duo recording (which also features a surprise special guest) and another with the co led group 'Solstice' are in the processes of being mixed and mastered. More news on these up and coming releases very soon!
