Our Next Concert (1)

Saturday 9th March 2019


LUCY RANDELL / "ANNIQUE"

with the

ROB TERRY TRIO


The Rob Terry Trio with their vocalist Lucy Randell ("Annique") 

have now given two joyous sessions for school pupils in Berkhamsted, 

and we are looking forward to hearing them in a full evening's concert.




ANNIQUE (LUCY RANDELL)   VOCALS

Lucy has been described as having a slightly split musical personality. We'll hear her as Lucy Randell, the straight-ahead jazz vocalist who sings all over the world with, for example the popular Jazz Dynamos.  We'll also hear a couple of examples of her Annique style featuring her own melodic originals drawing upon jazz and other traditions.



ROB TERRY   PIANO and LEADER

Rob is a performance and composition graduate from the University of Birmingham and has played at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Vortex Jazz Club, the 606 Club and Ronnie Scott’s, and has backed artists such as Eartha Kitt, Gloria Gaynor, Lulu, Sophie Garner Jazz Project and Neil Stacey’s Kimbara Brothers. 



PAUL JEFFERIES   BASS

Paul Jefferies began playing guitar when he was seven, but moved naturally to bass guitar and played with progressive rock and jazz fusion bands throughout his teens. Following a long break from the music, he began studying double bass technique and plays widely with mainstream and modern jazz combos.  An inventive and lyrical bassist, Paul has also performed with leading names such as Art Themen, Tommaso Starace, Tina May, Juliet Kelly, Nicolas Meier, Steve Waterman and Roger Beaujolais.



CHARLIE STRATFORD   DRUMS

Charlie started playing the drums at the age of 12 and soon became involved with various jazz groups and orchestras. In 1993 he won a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA, where he took lessons from Joe Hunt (Stan Getz) and Skip Hadden (Weather Report). He then returned to London and studied privately with Ed Thigpen (The Oscar Peterson Trio). 


Charlie has performed with artists including Humphrey Lyttleton, Scott Hamilton, and Jamie Cullum, and at venues which include not only The Royal Albert Hall but Buckingham Palace as well.
