Peggy Lee, Billie Holiday, Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln weren’t just great jazz vocalists – they were also songwriters. In Women’s Words, Sisters Stories, vocalist Ineza and the Alex Webb Trio explore the repertoire penned by the great female songstresses, with rising star trombonist Rosie Turton

In Women’s Words, Sisters Stories, vocalist Ineza and the Alex Webb Trio explore the repertoire penned by the great female songstresses – Billie’s Tell Me More, Peggy’s It’s a Good Day, Abbey’s Throw it Away, Betty Carter's Tight and many more, including poet Fran Landesman’s classic lyric Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most. And bringing it up to date are songs by Jazzmeia Horn, Cecile Mclorin Salvant and Rachelle Ferrell.

Ineza is a dazzling 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. She is also a passionate educator, and next to her work as a singing teacher she has been involved in various workshop-leading projects. She also has a passion for performing repertoire composed by the great female stars of jazz. Alex Webb is a pianist, arranger and songwriter with a long history of working with leading jazz vocalists; his songs have been recorded by Liane Carroll, China Moses, Jo Harrop, Allan Harris, Cherise, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and many others.

Trombonist, composer and producer Rosie Turton is a rising star on the UK music scene, cited by The Guardian as ‘One To Watch’ and nominated for Jazz FM’s ‘Breakthrough Act of the Year 2020’. A veteran of the Tomorrow’s Warriors collective, she released her debut LP, ‘Rosie’s 5ive’, with Jazz Re:freshed in early 2019 and her most recent EP ‘Expansions and Transformations: Part I & II’ in 2021.
