2018 has been a great year with the release of ‘Criss Cross’ (Alcyona Mick/Tori Freestone Duo) and tours of the UK and Germany with the duo and trio. The end of 2018 was a busy time for Tori with a London Jazz Orchestra performance featuring Norma Winstone, gigs in the London Jazz Festival including Nikki Isles’ new Big Band, a project with Noel Langley, a tour and recording with Andre Canniere’s ‘Darkening Blue’ Project and performances with her trio as well as the duo with Alcyona Mick featuring in the Teignmouth Jazz Festival. The trio will be recording their 3rd album early in 2019 and there’s a 17 date tour scheduled during 2019 including dates in Germany. The new album will be entitled ‘El Mar de Nubes’ which is about a viewpoint just below the summit of the spectacular ‘Teide’ (pictured) on the island of Tenerife as most of the album was composed in The Canary Islands, Tori’s beloved second home. The first gig of 2019 will be in the Timfanaya Theatre in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife as Tori is busy composing over there for the Xmas and New Year period.
2019 will be just as exciting. Check out the dates page for more info on the trio tour as well as some festival dates with the duo with Alcyona Mick in the UK and abroad, further London Jazz Orchestra dates including a recording, a new project with pianist Rick Simpson and another new project with a big band comprised of Whirlwind artists lead by Ingrid and Christine Jensen. Exciting times ahead. More updates to come! Feliz año nuevo/Happy New Year!
