Award-winning drummer Shane Forbes presents his unique show “Exploring Blossom Dearie”.
Winner of the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ ‘Young Musician of the Year’ award along with MOBO and Parliamentary Jazz Awards as a member of the internationally acclaimed quartet ‘Empirical’ (which he co-founded and co-leads), drummer Shane Forbes is without question one of the most in demand musicians on the UK jazz scene.
With a hugely impressive cv that includes regular appearances with the likes of Dee Dee Bridgewater, Jean Toussaint, Soweto Kinch, Claire Martin and the Ronnie Scott’s Allstars, his particularly impressive textural expressiveness and musical freedom have been the trademark of his sound in the countless projects he’s been a part of, both in the UK and Worldwide.
Tonight, for his gig at the Crazy Coqs, Shane will be joined by a dream team of long-time friends and some of London’s finest musicians, handpicked for this special gig: Alec Harper – saxophone, Will Barry – piano, Dave Archer – guitar and Tom Farmer – bass. Shane describes the music that they will perform this evening as “an exploration and adaptation of the tender, yet forcefully swinging style of the legendary jazz vocalist, Blossom Dearie”.
