International veteran jazz singer and pianist Terri Quaye brings a programme of ‘New York style’ jazz classics and her own compositions. Terri has performed and recorded with some of the greats of American jazz, including Archie Shepp, Billy Higgins, Johnny Griffin and Betty Carter.
‘The Stage’ newspaper quoted: ‘Nowadays piano and sophisticated cocktail bars are few and far between. Fortunately the hugely talented jazz singer, composer and pianist Terri Quaye is on hand to entertain customers at London’s Meridien Hotel in the heart of Piccadilly…Quaye has worked internationally and starred in jazz festivals in Rome, Poland and New Zealand as well as concerts in New York, Paris and Washington DC.’
Her Bridport programme includes the mellow swing of East of the Sun and Body and Soul, the lilting bossa nova of Wave, and Duke Ellington’s elegant ballad Sophisticated Lady. Terri is currently living in Bridport and recently performed in the Beaminster Arts Festival. She will be accompanied by Ron Phelan on 5-string double bass and Ronnie Jones on drums.
