'The Beat Goes On' with Sarah Moule, Trudy Kerr, Geoff Gascoyne and Simon Wallace
152 King's Road
A new show featuring Trudy Kerr, Sarah Moule, Simon Wallace and Geoff Gascoyne celebrating songs by Bob Dorough, Blossom Dearie, Fran Landesman and Dave Frishberg.
Earlier this year Sarah, Trudy, Simon and Geoff did a series of concerts with the hip nonagenarian Beat Generation survivor Bob Dorough. This collaboration inspired a set of witty, urbane lyrics and razor-sharp post-bop melodies by songwriters rooted in the hedonistic ideology of 1950s Greenwich Village. The show includes material by Dorough, Blossom Dearie, Fran Landesman and Dave Frishberg.
Trudy and Sarah are two of Britain's finest jazz singers. Geoff Gascoyne (bass) and Simon Wallace (piano) are both leading composer/producer/arrangers who vowed never to marry singers but fell at the final fence.
