It's been a busy period of touring during 2018, hence the lack of an update until now. The album launch tour with the duo with Alcyona Mick (featuring Brigitte Beraha on vocals on a few tracks) took the project all over the UK and also dates in Germany (Hamburg and Bremen) with concerts including the Symphony Hall in Birmingham and a live recording (plus interview with Tori) for Radio Bremen. The CD and concerts received rave reviews (see some of the UK ones above) as well as features/reviews/interviews/radio play in Germany, Austria and France including a feature in the main Austrian Jazz Magazine 'Concerto' and radio play on NDR radio. There are still concerts in the pipeline including Teignmouth Jazz Festival in November and more Germany and UK dates next year.
The trio have also been busy with dates in Germany and the UK during 2018 They'll be going into the studio again in a few months to record the new material that Tori's been busy writing and developing. There are dates throughout the Autumn in the run up to the new recording which will feature the new material and an album launch tour (including more dates abroad) is due in 2019.
Other projects will also be keeping Tori very busy. The LJO Vortex residency kicks off again featuring the work of Kenny Wheeler in September and then featuring Norma Winstone for a special concert in October. Andre Canniere's 'Darkening Blue' project will be touring this Autumn and is also due to record before the end of the year. More news coming very very soon on all this so watch this space!
