Join sensational Italian Jazz vocalist Barbara Raimondi for her first ever performances in Scotland, accompanied by the Dave Toule Organ Trio ft Huw Rees (organ), Max Popp (drums) and Dave Toule (guitar).
A prominent member of Italy’s thriving Jazz scene for over 20 years, Barbara has 5 critically acclaimed albums to her name, and has performed throughout Italy and around the world – including performances at Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express and London’s ReVoice! Festival.
Dynamic and versatile, Barbara has covered a broad range of styles within the jazz idiom during her career – from her album of beautifully arranged original compositions featuring London’s Basquiat Strings (Accoppiamenti Giudiziosi), to her incredible tribute to Ornette Coleman in which she stunningly scats and vocaleses her way through his original solos; not to mention her swinging vocal treatments of standards in duo with famed jazz guitarist Sandro Gibellini.
Working with a plethora of Italy’s most prolific jazz artists such as Enrico Pieranunzi, Emanuele Cisi, Furio di Castri during her career, she has also collaborated with the likes of legendary Jim Mullen, Tony Kofi, Antonio Forcione and countless others.
“An exceptional Italian singer, Barbara Raimondi, performed a supremely understated and heartwarming set” Jazzwise
“Barbara Raimondi Is a cultured and professional singer, with a natural voice control, the one never out of range. A high class voice, elegant and clever.” La Stampa
(On her album ‘Singing Ornette!!’) “In taking on this most challenging of projects– to sing the music of Ornette Coleman– Barbara Raimondi has made it a triumph. Singing both wordlessly and with her own lyrics, she perfectly captures the bittersweet moods of Ornette’s complex melodies.” Jim Mullen
