Jazz Great Makes Fourth Appearance In Chipperfield

1st of February 2011

For those of you familiar with jazz, the name Pete Churchill will be well known but would you expect to see him perform in an intimate venue in a local village?
Living in the area, Pete is embarking on his fourth jazz night with the Pete Churchill Trio in the Village Hall on Saturday 12 February to raise money for St Paul’s JMI School.
Pete will perform with his trio which has attracted audiences from across the county.
Richard Ginn from the school PTA said, “The PTA really appreciates Pete, and his wife Nikki Iles who is also a jazz musician, for the time they give up to host a show in our village hall.”
As a pianist Pete has worked with many of the leading jazz names here and abroad and for the last decade has been the UK musical director for American jazz singer, Mark Murphy. He has been a Professor of Jazz studies at the Guildhall since 1988 and is a member of the faculty at the Royal Academy of Music where he teaches jazz composition.
He also runs a trio under his own name with an album soon to be released called The Bad and the Beautiful featuring Scottish sax player Bobby Wellins. As a singer he is a founder of the New London Jazz Voices and has successfully directed a performance of Ellington’s Sacred Music with Stan Tracey.
Tickets are available in advance at £12.50 from Lisa Curteis on 07714246602.
Any remaining tickets will be available on the door at £15.
There will be a licensed bar from 8pm and the show commences at 8.30pm.
