Jazz at the Blue Lamp presents
Alice Zawadski Band
Thursday 4th April 2013 8pm
Violinist and composer Alice Zawadzki plays music from her debut album 'China Lane'. A huge vocal and instrumental talent with an engagingly eccentric, sensual and feminine style reminiscent of Bjork, Kate Bush and Florence Welch. Zawadzki’s classical and jazz backgrounds are certainly explored in her music but her highly personalised music also adds liberal elements of folk and world music strains. She is supported by a strong jazz based band featuring Alex Roth on guitar and Euan Burton on bass.
“Jaw droppingly good is no overstatement…From the very first note of the first piece, Alice’s sensitive vocal improvising interweaved with Dan’s contemplative piano playing in a way that was genuinely captivating… Her voice managed to communicate a brave and touching expression of feelings on the topic of obsessional love in a way that most singers would struggle to get close to…" Adrian Stevenson, Manchester Jazz Festival
