It’s Christmas and Teignmouth Jazz and Blues Club is taking the opportunity to beat the rush by having a great party night when the incredibly popular singer Annika Skoogh joins forces with the veteran key board player Tom Ball, the very talented Jim Rintoul on bass and Gary Evans on drums. The result is the Liminal project.

As the name Liminal would suggest this is a period of transition when superb musicians come together and explore and blend their differing musical persona to produce a new state of musical experience.

Annika has a reputation for delivering a wide variety of songs ranging from Brazilian Bossa Nova to jazz standards that really swing. But you can expect even more as she works with Liminal which will be launched on the night. The band has been working hard over the past months to bring a new repertoire that retains favourites but brings a new freshness with original numbers as well as pop and contemporary tunes.  Even the great American Song Book is reworked with imaginative rearrangement and harmonies.  With tunes from the likes of Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Cyndi Lauper, Charles Mingus, Stevie Wonder, Simply Red, Kurt Elling, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Roy Hargove; you will be spoilt for choice

Fresh, lively and of course entertaining this will be a great evening to start the Festive period. Tell your friends and come along

A Few of our Past Gig Nights

 

Wednesday November 13th –Talinka Quartet

Blues – Saturday 21st September – Kyla Brox

 

 

 

 

 

This was the first in a series of joint ventures between  Pavilions Teignmouth and Teignmouth Jazz and Blues, initially featuring female artists. Playing to a nearly sold out auditorium, the band started to play a lovely slowish riff as the radiant figure of Kyla Brox approached the mic to start what turned out be a marvelous evening of wonderful music. This first number immediately displayed the beauty and power of her voice with several people commenting during the break how emotional they had felt from the beginning. She showed an incredible range in her voice and at least on two occasions seemed to hold a perfect note for what seemed like minutes! Much of the music was original compositions, a lot from their latest recording called Pain and Glory, though they did end the first set with their wonderful take on one of Kyla’s idols, Etta James and her version of “I’d rather go blind”Many commented on the excellent musical standard of the band who were in particularly good form though I was told that Paul Farr on lead Guitar was suffering from a nasty cold. The drummer, Mark Warburton however, whose playing throughout was fantastic, accused him of feigning a touch of man flu’! This only underlined how well the band seemed to gell and get on. They were certainly a tight outfit that night.

Kyla indeed was very generous in her praise of her fellow musicians who included her husband, Danny Blomeley on bass who in turn impressed the audience with a couple of fine solos.
Paul Farr on lead was outstanding, showing a versatility and range which was quite magnificent. The skill of the local sound man, Dominic Jeffries, deserves a special mention as the sound quality was spot on all night.
Finally they left possibly the best to last with their rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” which brought most of the audience to their feet to salute the mastery of this fine band. A very good evening was had by all.
