vocalese-fest on Sunday 14th July 2019

Directly opposite the east side exit of Kew Gardens is a unique little Cafe seating around 25 people. The proprietress Yukari loves piano music and has installed a beautiful Fazioli grand piano, Italy's answer to Steinway. No amplification is allowed so in this small place the focus is the natural sounds of the instruments . You can just drink a tea or coffee or order from the Japanese orientated menu. No alcohol is served but you can bring your own or take your pick from the off-licence conveniently positioned opposite.

This vocalse-fest will feature Peter Stickland, Allan Cinamon and Miyuki. Peter has recently published a book 'Jazz song' which includes lyrics he has written to great improvisations by the jazz saxophonist John Coltrane which he will be singing this evening. Allan and Miyuki are both particularly attracted to this very demanding genre of jazz song.
