Event description

Description

World renowned Jazz Pianist Kirk Lightsey joins Jazz Vocalist Sabina Desir for what is set to be a stunning candlelit celebration of the music of Thelonious Monk and Ella Fitzgerald at the historical church of St Peters in Vauxhall, London. Not only does 2017 mark the 100th Birthdays of Monk and Ella, it also marks Kirk Lightseys 80th Birthday.

Kirk and Sabina have chosen music to honour both Monk and Ella, along with some wonderful original surprises from both Kirk and Sabina. Joining the celebrations are Doug Sides on drums, one of Kirk's oldest friends and one of Benny Golson's regular drummers...Dave Whitford on bass, a solid and creative player and Kirk's first choice for this gig (so happy he could make the date) and Lawrence Fletcher on tenor and alto sax, a very exciting player!

And to the selected venue...Why St Peters and not one of London's many Jazz clubs? St Peters has the most extraordinary musical heritage. Built on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, between the seventeeth and nineteenth centuries the gardens served as London's premier musical destination. J.C.Bach, Handel and Mozart all performed there. Monk was connected to something ' other-worldly' and this inspiring, stunning and spiritual venue is fitting for both the legacy of Monk and the stature of Lightsey. Though Jazz fans need not fret about the venue, a bar shall be available.
