The Blue Lamp
A collaboration between two of the UK’s finest jazz artists Barry Green and Brigitte Beraha, the band also features legends Chris Laurence and Paul Clarvis. Between them they have played and recorded with Kenny Wheeler, John Surman, Sarah Vaughan, Norma Winstone, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Lee Konitz and many more. Their debut album Babelfish was released to critical acclaim and picked by Sebastian Scotney, founder of LondonJazz, as his top album of 2012.
Their latest album “Chasing Rainbows”, which received rave reviews, is a new collection of music they love, regardless of where it comes from - Songs in English, French, Portuguese and Italian, from original songs about love to fast paced compositions about sushi; from free Jazz to their take on Contemporary Classical songs, each Babelfish performance is fearless, fresh and mesmerising.
"This remarkable quartet has evolved its own musical language. […] Unfamiliar at first, but gently seductive, it keeps you listening through the sheer power of invention.” Dave Gelly, The Observer
"It’s a pleasure to enter the original music language of this band: a world of playfulness and beauty, where anything could happen- you’re caught up in their sense of mystery and imagination.” Alison Bentley, LondonJazz
"Babelfish are a definition of a contemporary jazz class act." John Fordham, The Guardian
