JazzUP Presents…

(This JazzUP gig is part of 20 date Arts Council supported tour.)

Tobie Carpenter Organ Trio

London based contemporary Trio playing originals, celebrating the music of 1920s New Orleans, 1950s New York and new millennium Europe. Melodic, swinging compositions full of fun and passionate improvisation from three of the UK’s most exciting young Jazz musicians. The group’s debut EP ‘DEAD PAN PARTY’ (Turquoise Coconut Records) was released in 2017
reaching No.1 in the iTunes Jazz Album Chart.

Alice Zawadzki

“She is a genuine original with a pure, pealing voice that can darken into brooding low tones, and twist with flexibility and harmonic awareness…” – The Guardian

“Displaying a similar otherness as some of our treasured pop eccentrics (Kate Bush, Bjork) Zawadzki comes from a jazzier place.” – MOJO Magazine

“Beguiling, unorthodox tunes and pure vocals” – The Independent

“Her lustrous vocal range is the real live deal.. a commanding, intense performer” – Jazzwise Magazine

“Beautiful, uncategorisable – a real force to be reckoned with” – Jamie Cullum

Nadim Teimoori
Award winning tenor saxophonist and composer Nadim Teimoori graduated Royal Academy Of Music with a First. He was a member of NYJO, and has played with the likes Jamie Callum and Stan Tracey. He appears regularly at top London venues such as Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, 606 Club, and The Vortex.

“Plays with a maturity way beyond his years” – Alyn Shipton, BBC Radio 3, Jazz Wise

“A master of his instrument” – East Side Jazz Club

“A precocious hard-boppish authority” – The Guardian


JazzUP DJs

Plus Les Jazz Rats DJs spinning vinyl for the warm-up, between the sets, and for the dance floor later.
