The Hampstead Jazz Club presents A summer evening of Jazz fused with Latin rhythms from the fabulous Katriona Taylor and her Trio.
Enjoy Samba, Bossa and other Brazilian vibes like you never heard before, as well as a few of Katriona’s highly praised own originals. Katriona has performed in the UK and internationally for many years. She has toured with the likes of 11 times Grammy awarding winning legend George Benson, as well as James Taylor Quartet and many others.
Jazz is Katriona’s passion and you can’t help being moved by her voice. Born in London, Katriona grew up with a background of music and tennis – her father is former UK and International tennis champion Roger Taylor. Seeking intellectual fulfilment, Katriona qualified and practised as a city lawyer, before her love of music enticed her to forge a new career as a full time singer.
After gaining a Masters qualification in acting and singing at London’s prestigious Central School of Speech & Drama, and with an absolute passion for Latin music and jazz, Katriona began writing her own songs. She has produced five albums to great acclaim and her latest album, “Blind Passion“, will be released in 2021.
Showcasing the many facets of Katriona, who is visually impaired, this 12 track album features her own original songs and celebrates the songs of blind artists such as Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano, Diane Schuur and Ray Charles. The album is a blend of jazz, Latin and soul styles.
