RECENT EVENTS - Late Night Jazz - Theo Jackson Trio

Thursday 28 June 2012 - 9:45 PM

Theo Jackson | Royal Albert Hall

Theo Jackson celebrated his 25th Birthday with a first gig at the prestigious 606 Jazz Club. Just a year and a half later the exciting singer/pianist has subsequently become a regular performer at numerous great venues including Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Forge Arts Centre and various jazz festivals.

This show will be Theo's first since returning from New Zealand where he shared a billing with legends Mike Stern and Bob Mintzer at the headlining show of Palmerston North’s Jazz and Blues Festival.

The trio will present some classy jazz inspired by the great piano trios, expect to hear great tunes by the likes of Bill Evans, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk, as well as some of Theo's highly considered original pieces.

Joining Theo on stage will be his regular trio of Jason Reeve on drums and Boston ex-pat Shane Allessio on double-bass.

'Soulful, earthy vocal-led jazz from this impressive young singer with a powerful yet subtle voice, Jackson also has a knack of penning Stevie Wonder-esque originals that avoid the usual crooner clichés... Jackson's one to watch out for.'
