Following the success of this outstanding showcase at the beginning of July, we are pleased to bring you the return of vocalist Ineza and the Alex Webb Trio. If you missed out the first time this is your chance to be transported to a time where the the great female songstresses mesmerised audiences worldwide with songs such as Billie’s ‘Don’t Explain’, Peggy’s ‘It’s a Good Day’, Abbey’s ‘Throw it Away’ and many more in their show “Women’s Words, Sisters Stories.“
Peggy Lee, Billie Holiday, Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln weren’t just great jazz vocalists – they were also songwriters, who contributed some great works to the canon. In ‘Women’s Words, Sisters Stories;, vocalist Ineza and the Alex Webb Trio explore the repertoire penned by the great female songstresses – Billie’s ‘Don’t Explain’, Peggy’s ‘It’s a Good Day’, Abbey’s ‘Throw it Away’ and many more, including poet Fran Landesman’s classic lyric ‘Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most’.
Bringing it up to date are also songs by Jazzmeia Horn, Cecile Mclorin Salvant and Rachelle Ferrell.
Ineza is a Rwandan-born Belgian Jazz singer, based in London. She is a graduate of both Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and Maastricht Conservatoire in The Netherlands.
Ineza was one of only eight artists to be awarded a place at the second edition of artist development program LEAP organised by international music producers Serious. She is also a passionate educator, and next to her work as a singing teacher she has been involved in various workshop-leading projects.
Alex Webb, musical impresario and leader of this hugely impressive trio, works in diverse ways in the jazz world, creating collaborations, words-and-music shows, theatre productions and recordings. His recent album ‘The Last Bohemians’, a collaboration with vocalist David McAlmont, received 4-star reviews in the Times, Mojo, Jazzwise and Jazz Journal.
As a prolific songwriter, arranger and pianist, Alex’s songs have been recorded by jazz singers China Moses, Mina Agossi, Sandra Nkake, Liane Carroll, Allan Harris and Alexander Stewart, among others.
