Lots of exciting projects, news and reviews are coming up in April for Tori and the trio, including performances at the Bedford and Milton Keynes Jazz Festival on 28 March and Kings Place on 11 April.  Check out more on the dates page.  The reviews and articles keep rolling in too!   An interview with Tori on Chris Phillips' radio show on Jazz FM is scheduled to be aired in April, the Austrian magazine 'Concerto' has reviewed the album for their April edition, and Jazzwise features a 'Whirlwind Recordings' CD sampler (which features a track from the trio as well as some of the fantastic musicians who have recorded for Whirlwind over the years) and a feature on this exciting and successful transatlantic label to celebrate their fifth anniversary.  Definitely worth investing in a copy!

Upcoming London dates

The next trio gig is at the 606 in Chelsea (check out the dates page for further info) and this'll be the last in London for a while, so come down and catch us in this great venue if you can make it!  Also, very excited to announce that our next London date after this will be in the London Jazz Festival at the Purcell Rooms on the 16 November supporting Henri Texier!  It's going to be a great festival - check out some of the programme above (we're feeling very honoured to be in such great company) and the full listings here!

More reviews!

We had a great time at the Manchester Jazz Festival and spent a lovely evening at the Chop House too!  Check out Adrian Pallant's review of the festival (which includes a mention of our gig) here.  Thanks to Adrian too for the great pic!  We've also had a lovely review of the album on 'Kind of Jazz'.  Check this out on the tweets section of my homepage. After Manchester we had a mini tour of the South West which was brilliant fun.  Swimming in the sea, eating pasties or fish and chips and then a lovely trio gig to round each day off - life doesn't get much better than that!

Apart from that, I've just recorded a new album with Ivo Neame's Quintet which is also going to be released on the 'Whirlwind' label which is great news.  Looking forward to some gigs abroad with Ivo in September.

The trio have some more exciting projects and dates in the pipeline, so stay tuned for more on that very soon.
