"Isn't' she great! Now there's a vocalist," says Michael Bublé of singer songwriter Tammy Weis who launches her latest album at Ronnie Scott's just days before she takes to the stage at The Kenton Theatre, Henley-on-Thames, on Sunday February 28th.
A fifth generation musician with
country roots, Weis was influenced in her early years by great singers like
Tammy Wynette (after whom she is named) and Bonnie Raitt, giving her voice an
original 'edge' not common in many jazz performers. Her love of Sarah
Vaughan and Peggy Lee can be heard in her subtle intonations and inflections and
composer/pianist and BBC Radio 3 Jazz presenter, Julian Joseph calls her, "A
master of the ballad."
Recent highlights in Weis' career include collaborations and appearances with Jamie Cullum at the Jazz Cafe, with Bobby McFerrin at the Royal Albert Hall, with Ian Shaw and Lianne Carroll at the Royal Opera House and singing opposite Curtis Stigers at Ronnie Scott's.
Joining Weis on February 28th is a quartet drawn from the cream of the UK Jazz Scene. At the core is pianist Tom Cawley - with whom Weis co-wrote most of the tracks on her new album and highly respected for his work with Curios and the influential Acoustic Ladyland. Alongside Cawley is the brilliantly vibrant guitarist Al Cherry, described by The Times as, "A genius at creating the right setting;" bassist Arnie Somogyi - one of the busiest players around with appearances on over 30 albums; and superb drummer Seb de Krom, Jamie Cullum's main rhythm man for several years. Now that is certainly top Jazz support.
