Rachel Sutton & The Roland Perrin Trio
Saturday 16th July 2022
Tickets: £20.00 Seat at a shared Table for 4 /£15.00 Seat – No Table
This evening at The Hampstead Jazz Club, Rachel will be singing songs from her new album, ‘A Million Conversations,’ which has been called ‘a revelation’ by Jazz Views.
Out now on 33 Jazz Records, this is a creation of beautifully crafted original compositions and covers, which is by turns achingly tender, yet sassy and seductive. Lovers meet and they part. The rejected drink and forget. And loved ones are lost forever. The rich tapestry of life runs through this album and is both haunting and uplifting.
Rachel Sutton has worked as both an actress and a singer. Her rich tone and sense of swing coupled with her background in theatre creates both an exciting and moving experience for her audience. Her theatrical training is at the core of every song, and her flair for entertainment and easy rapport with an audience is gaining her a first class reputation. .
Tonight, Rachel will be performing songs from her album as well as her own arrangements of songs from The Great American Songbook.
A theatre student at The Welsh College of Music and Drama, she has gone on to play some of the lead roles in Shakespeare, touring the UK and Europe. Rachel’s vocal abilities have landed her roles in award winning shows at the Edinburgh and New York Fringe. She has performed sell out gigs at top London Jazz clubs as well as venues and festivals across the UK and abroad. Her role in ‘Lansky: The Mob’s Money Man’ at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank and Cadogan Hall received wide acclaim – ‘stand out performer’ London Jazz News.
Accompanying Rachel this evening will be the exceptional pianist and composer Roland Perrin (Annie Ross, Dudu Pukwana, Brotherhood of Breath), the brilliant Paul Robinson on drums (Nina Simone, Eric Bibb) and the wonderful Curtis Ruiz on bass (The Wailers, Rita Marley, Kylie Minogue).
