About the event

Winner of Parliamentary Jazz Awards Jazz Vocalist Of The Year 2019

Performing lyrical interpretations of the quirky, complex compositions from the legendary pianist and composer, Thelonious Monk. Originally inspired by the 1988 Carmen McRae album “Carmen Sings Monk” with lyrics penned by Jon Hendricks, Abbey Lincoln, Mike Ferro and Bernie Hannighen. Zoe details this performance with an informative, fascinating time line of Thelonious and Carmen’s career including the story behind ‘Pannonica’ written in honour of the Jazz Baroness, patron of bebop, Kathleen Annie Pannonica de Koenigswarter.

Along with Zoe Gilby’s unique vocal phrasing, a distinctive deep understanding and appreciation of Monk and McRae’s work is the highlight of this exceptional project. With Terence Collie on piano, Marianne WIndham on double bass and Alex Goodyear on drums.On stage with Zoe will be technically gifted, genre-crossing guitarist Jez Cook (you’ll also have seen Jez with jazz violinist Ben Holder), bassist Paul Jefferies and the rhythmically creative drummer Alex Goodyear. A real treat of a show awaits!
