- Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club

Stars of the evening:
Wendy Kirkland continues to affirm her stature as a leading UK jazz pianist and singer, her latest appearance being a sell-out gig at the world-renowned Ronnie Scott's club in London with guitarist husband Pat Sprakes. "Terrific pianist and singer. Assured and full of surprises." ★★★★ Dave Gelly, The Observer
Esther Bennett is one of the London jazz scene’s most highly respected and widely loved jazz vocalists. She juxtaposes sensitivity with a sparkly sense of humour, her song delivery leaving audiences utterly compelled.
Creating quite a stir on the jazz scene at present, Kim has firmly secured a reputation for top quality, stylish jazz, performing with top UK musicians. Continually described as 'vivacious', her performances are full of positive, vibrant energy, great humour, enthusiasm and wonderful musicianship. Inspired by the funkier side of jazz and having studied alongside US saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis (esteemed side-man with James Brown) and jazz saxophonist Andy Sheppard, Kim’s style of performance is best described as funky saxophonist meets 1940 s jazz.
She is a member of avant garde trio J Frisco. Lara contrasts high energy pulsating electronics with mediative dream-like soundscapes with solo saxophone & software Abelton; using live processing and field recordings to build structures and stories in her work.
Rouhangeze presents some of her compositions for her album "Evasio". It's an exploration of the traditional rhythms of the Sega that she sings in her mother tongue, Mauritian Creole. Her compositions are basked in the colours of Africa and India influenced by her love of Jazz and the marriage between electronic and organic sounds.
with support from J Steps.
J Steps is a brand new venture in jazz led by UK jazz saxophonist Hannah Horton as part of Guildhall Young Artists, Saffron Walden. The band is for anyone who is 18 and under and identifies as female or non-binary with its main aim being to tackle the historic lack of representation of women in jazz by providing an exclusive opportunity.
J Steps appearance for Women In Jazz Media at London Jazz Festival in November will be their first gig and they could not be more pleased to be playing to jazz fans and supporters in a venue like the Toulouse Lautrec!
