Fleet Jazz Club: The Tim Whitehead Quartet, Tim Whitehead/Giovanni Mirabassi Quartet, Giovanni Mirabassi
"Early in 2005, multi-award winning tenor saxophonist and British Jazz icon Tim Whitehead toured with the internationally renowned Italian pianist Giovanni Mirabassi, which led to the release of their album Lucky Boys in 2006 and since then they have continued to work together both in the UK and Europe. After a recent gig in Paris to celebrate the 20th year of Giovanni’s career, they are back together for a UK tour this Autumn, and we are delighted to welcome them to Fleet Jazz for what is sure to be a very special night.
Featuring Tim Whitehead (tenor sax), Giovanni Mirabassi (piano), Tom Hooper (drums), Marianne Windham (bass)
‘With an absolute individuality of tone and touch, Mirabassi displays a profound confidence in his own musical language and imagination… one of Europe’s most compelling musicians, working at the top of his powers’ - Praise for Lucky Boys (2006)"
