Line-up: EMILIA MARTENSSON vocals; LUCA BOSCAGIN guitar; SAM LASSERSON bass; JON SCOTT drums; MATT ROBINSON piano
Emilia Mårtensson, ”A voice of quite remarkable expressive depth” -(JAZZWISE) will this evening be presenting music from her latest album ‘Loredana’, which features music of enormous delicacy, subtlety, and imagination, not to mention a predilection for the melancholic, Joining her on stage is Luca Boscagin on guitar, Jon Scott on Drums and Sam Lasserson on bass. Special guest Matt Robinson on piano will also be joining the award-winning vocalist to present a short set from their upcoming project which looks to expand upon the traditional piano-vocal duo with a fresh approach to sound, colour, and open improvisation. The duo will visit some classic standards such as Cheek to Cheek, The Midnight sun, and Heres’s that rainy day.
Emilia Mårtensson is a London-based Swedish vocalist and composer with a well-deserved reputation as being one of the most exciting vocalists on the UK Jazz scene which in 2016 led to her being awarded ‘Vocalist of the Year′ at The Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Emilia has led ensembles that have performed all over the world including major Jazz Festivals such as The Rochester Jazz Festival in New York, Ljubljana Jazz Festival in Slovenia, and Umeå Jazz Festival in Sweden.
Her gently expressive voice and highly personal compositions are firmly rooted within the folklore and countryside of her native southern Sweden, adding to the mystique and allure of a distinctive and truly original artist. Emilia is also known for being part of the MOBO award-winning British contemporary jazz quartet Kairos 4tet, led by Adam Waldmann.
"...always intriguing, often beautiful and thought-provoking”. -Jazzjournal
"Emilia Mårtensson's singing bobbed and weaved like a great boxer. She lured the crowd close with a whisper, then sent them flying with a note strong as Ali's right hook. With her mass of kinky blonde curls flying about her, she stretched and cast the notes and phrases into her desired shapes. The airwaves were her clay, her sculptures instant and fleeting. No one the same as another. And every tune she took would have filled a gallery with marvels". -James Fleming (All about Jazz)
