Tori just arrived home from recording in Italy with her duo with Alcyona Mick for their upcoming album which will feature special guest Brigitte Beraha. The album was recorded in the amazing Artesuono studios in Italy. The duo have a gig coming up at Marsden Jazz Festival this Sunday (pictured above next to one of Grand Central's trains who are supporting the festival). The duo travelling for the whole tour by train, so it's very apt that they're posing for the festival poster here :-).
In the same week, Tori's trio performed at the Leibnitz Jazz Festival in Austria. Despite having her luggage stolen en route (which included most of the clothing pictured above sadly), it's been an amazing experience for herself and the bands she's involved with driving around Europe playing, recording and hanging out with some great friends and musicians. Who needs luggage!
More news on the upcoming album and duo tour very soon, plus the outcome of the parliamentary jazz awards on the 10th October for which Tori has been shortlisted for jazz instrumentalist of 2017. All In a all a good year apart from various items going missing along the way :-)
Stay tuned for more news very soon!
