A Night of Jazz Ft Barbara Raimondi With Dave Toule Organ Trio

Barbara Raimondi is an astonishingly talented singer, composer and jazz educator who has been a prominent member of the Italian jazz scene for over 20 years. With 5 highly acclaimed albums to her name, she's performed throughout Italy and around the world - including performances at Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express and London’s ReVoice! Festival. She's covered a huge range of styles within the jazz idiom during her career - from her album of beautifully arranged original compositions featuring London's Basquiat Strings (Accoppiamenti Giudiziosi), to her incredible tribute to Ornette Coleman in which she vocalises his original solos ("making it a triumph" according to Jim Mullen!), and her stunning vocal treatments of standards in duo with Sandro Gibellini (Chet Baker's guitarist). Throughout her career she has worked with a host of prolific Italian and global jazz artists like Jim Mullen, Antonio Forcione, Tony Kofi, Enrico Pieranunzi, Emanuele Cisi, Furio Di Castri and countless others. On this occasion she will be accompanied by the Edinburgh based Dave Toule Organ Trio, featuring Huw Rees (Organ) and Max Popp (Drums). “Barbara Raimondi Is a cultured and professional singer, with a natural voice control, the one never out of range. A high class voice, elegant and clever.” Franco Mondini – La Stampa (On her album ‘Singing Ornette!!’) “In taking on this most challenging of projects-- to sing the music of Ornette Coleman-- Barbara Raimondi has made it a triumph. Singing both wordlessly and with her own lyrics, she perfectly captures the bittersweet moods of Ornette's complex melodies.” Jim Mullen “An exceptional Italian singer, Barbara Raimondi, performed a supremely understated and heartwarming set” Peter Quinn – Jazzwise ------

You can see footage of her performing at the following links, and on her website https://www.barbararaimondi.net/: The Missing (based on Ornette’s ‘The Blessing’) with Tony Kofi, Furio Di Castri & Enzo Zirilli: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXh-P85Wde8 Fina Estampa - a Latin American piece performed at Pizza Express with Enzo Zirilli & Roberto Taufic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuRh7w7gscs Social Media: http://pleaseseebioforvideolinks
