Wendy Kirkland

The Acorn, Penzance

Described as 'the unsung heroine of British Jazz' by esteemed jazz critic Ian Mann and 'mellow and stylish' by Clive Davis of the Sunday Times. Wendy will be performing songs from her album which contains fresh arrangements of jazz classics made famous by Jazzwomen such as Diana Krall, Eliane Elias, Shirley Horn, Nina Simone and Blossom Dearie. Wendy tells the story of these women and how they inspired her to strive to become the UK's leading exponent of jazz piano and voice, with equal merit in both. Wendy is joined by a band who have performed with the UK's top jazz players as well as US stars such as Darius Brubeck. Pat Sprakes (guitar), Mike Green (double bass) and Caroline Boaden (drums).

"Proper jazz piano, excellent band. A very classy debut." 4 stars. Dave Gelly, The Observer.
