St Mary's Music School
25 Grosvenor Cres, Edinburgh EH12 5EL
Join Italian vocalist, composer and jazz educator Barbara Raimondi for her first ever UK vocal masterclass! “Rhythm & Phrasing in Improv” will focus on the development of strong rhythmic ideas as a tool to build exciting, and most importantly: Swingin’ solos!
With 5 highly acclaimed albums to her name, Barbara has been a prominent member of the Italian jazz scene for over 20 years, performing 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.
