Sarah Tandy usually shies away from the limelight. However, the West London keyboard player has now put together her own feverish line-up and is releasing her first EP, Infection in the Sentence, with Jazz Re:freshed. She will be showcasing the new album at Kings Place on 27th April.
With a childhood of classical training, and having competed as a finalist for the BBC Young Musician Awards, she has taken her technical abilities and turned them towards a more playful rhythmical jazz outfit. Tandy has been playing on the underground music scene for a while with artists such as Camilla George, Nubya Garcia and Nu Civilisation Orchestra. Her new quintet, unveiled last year, includes all our favourite UK players: Ezra Collective‘s Femi Koleoso on drums, Binker Golding on saxophone, Sheila Maurice-Grey on trumpet, and Mutale Chashi on bass.
Joining Tandy at Kings Place will be trombone player Rosie Turton. With a more dance-heavy sound, Turton’s group blends trombone, violin and electronics with the sounds of jazz, hip-hop and Indian classical music.
This is a new series of gigs from Jazz Re:freshed, who never disappoint in presenting the best up-and-coming musicians in town. And what better way to start than with some of our favourite female jazzers!
