JAZZ FESTIVAL COMES TO BLACK IVY
‘It’s The Rio Thing’
July 17th & 18th
Cocktail & Show – £10 // Dinner & Show – £35
As part of Edinburgh Jazz Festival, we are delighted to be hosted two great nights of wonderful entertainment.
Kenny Clayton is a living legend. A pianist and composer who has worked with stars such as Shirley Bassey, Petula Clark, Matt Monro, Charles Aznavor, Cilla Black and Beatles producer George Martin, he is one of the outstanding jazz and pop musicians from the golden era.
Kenny will perform with Liverpool-born Brazilian band Baiana, which is fronted by charismatic singer Laura Doyle and features ex Wave Machines drummer Vidar Norheim, renowned gypsy-jazz guitarist Micky Dunne and in-demand bassist Jesse Eigan.
Hailing originally from Liverpool, flame-haired Laura learned her craft while living in Rio. A born-entertainer, Laura’s colourful costumes and charismatic performances always have audiences shouting for more.
Together Kenny and Baiana will be exploring what they affectionately call the “Scouse American songbook” which will see them celebrating the great standards of Brazilian jazz, performing original songs and breathing new life into some of Lennon and McCartney’s most melodic compositions.
All in all, this will be a rare, unforgettable and unmissable evening of entertainment.
“Wow! So Fantastic. Great Brazilian vibes and what a voice” Simon Rimmer, Celebrity Chef
“A thoroughly entertaining group. Their genuine and enthusiastic talent shine through in every number…a privilege and a joy to see them” Liverpool Jazz
“A treasure chest of classic Bossa Novas…Liverpool based band Baiana have been wowing audiences with their sophisticated sounds” Good News Liverpool
