June was an extremely busy month for Tori touring with Solstice all over the UK from the South West to the north (picture above is from the beautiful venue at Colchester Arts with bass player Dave Manington). The band developed new material whilst on tour which will be recorded in London.
Tori and Dave will soon be playing together again as there are some lovely trio dates coming up in September at the Karamel Club in London as a double bill with Tori's duo and then a concert at the Leibnitz Jazz Festival which will be recorded for the Austria National Radio station ORF. It's a jazz and wine festival, so Tori will be in her element :-)
The duo with Alcyona commence a 14 date tour from November onwards and are both Tori and Alcy are extremely excited to be recording in a fantastic studio in Udine, Italy early in October for release early in 2018. They're proud to announce that this will be on 'Whirlwind Recordings'.
Other projects are still keeping busy: Andre Canniere's 'Darkening Blue' project will be performing at the Mancheseter Jazz Festival 30th July and further dates in 2018, plus Tori has written a commission for a Dectet project which will be premiered at the Scarborough and London Jazz Festivals this year. More info on all that to come soon.
