MARTIN TAYLOR 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS!
As part of Martin Taylor’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations, Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho, London will play host to three special nights in October.
To kick-off this run of dates on the 11th October, Martin Taylor will be joined by Georgia Cécile, winner of ‘UK Jazz Act Of The Year’ & ‘Vocalist of the Year’ at the 2022 Jazz FM awards. Georgia Cécile is at the helm of the new wave of UK jazz crossover artists. Inspired by the likes of Nina Simone, Duke Ellington and Stevie Wonder, her debut 'Only The Lover Sings' topped the UK jazz charts and won 'Best Album' at the 2021 Scottish Jazz Awards. Championed by Gregory Porter and Jamie Cullum, she toured as main support for Porter, opening at the Royal Albert Hall.
On the 12th October we are immensely proud that PizzaExpress Jazz Club is delighted to play host to the debut performance by The Fibonacci Brothers featuring Martin Taylor, Nigel Price, Ciyo Brown, and Giorgio Serci. Martin Taylor, the acclaimed "Acoustic Guitarist of his Generation," has astounded audiences worldwide with his solo jazz and fingerstyle guitar playing. Nigel Price, renowned for his bebop lines and bluesy feel, is one of the most in-demand guitarists on the British jazz scene. Giorgio Serci, an award-winning guitarist, educator and composer, adds his international expertise to the mix. Completing the quartet is award-winning guitarist Ciyo Brown who is acclaimed for his eclectic approach to music and is much in-demand on the UK music scene. Each guitarist will be performing with their Fibonacci archtop guitar, hand-crafted in the United Kingdom.
When Martin Taylor, who has collaborated with singers including Peggy Lee, Jamie Cullum, Dionne Warwick and Bryn Terfel, decided to record an intimate duo album with a vocalist, he chose Scottish-Canadian jazz singer Alison Burns. Their first duo album, 1:AM, took its inspiration from the Grammy award winning collaboration between Joe Pass & Ella Fitzgerald, mixing repertoire from The Great American Songbook and contemporary material. On the 13th October, the Pizza Express Soho Jazz Club show will debut music from their forthcoming album which is a collection of songs celebrating the energy and creativity of the Roaring 20s. Tickets are selling fast for this special occasion. Book here:
