Jazz with The Rachel Myer Trio at Bridge Cottage
Location: Bridge Cottage, High Street, Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 1AZ
Date: Saturday, January 20, 2018, 8.00 pm - 10.00 pm
The Rachel Myer Trio are due to perform at Bridge Cottage in Uckfield on Saturday, January 20, 2018.
Singer Rachel Myer will be accompanied by guitarist Jason Henson, and double bass player Terry Pack.
Expect a mix of classic material from the Great American Songbook, modern jazz standards, and Rachel’s own take on the rich musical legacy of Latin America, all delivered with verve, soul and plenty of swing.
Rachel is an active participant on the Sussex jazz scene, regularly performing with the versatile guitarist Jason Henson.
She’s influenced by her love of the classic singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, and Blossom Dearie as well as more modern interpreters of the tradition such as Dee Dee Bridgewater, and by singers like Joyce and Elis Regina and their interpretation of the Bossa Nova scene of Brazil.
Jason has been playing the guitar for over 25 years, and has worked with many internationally acclaimed jazz musicians, including Joe Lee Wilson, Bobby Wellins, Jo Hunter, Jim Mullen, Claire Martin, Rio Van Hooijdonk and Jonny Hepbir.
Jason traveled to the gypsy campsites in Holland and Germany to play with some of the grand masters of gypsy jazz in order to incorporate their incredible techniques into his own playing.
Terry has had a career spanning more than four decades including spells with The Enid, Cosy Powell, Graham Bonnet and Steve Hacket to name but a few.
In recent years he has turned his focus onto jazz and his recent musical collaborations reads like a who’s who of the British jazz scene: Claire Martin, The Cloggz, Ben Castle, Bobby Wellins, Nigel Price and Martin France.
