Karen Sharp Quartet featuring Nikki Iles (piano), Dave Green (double bass), Steve Brown (drums)
Inspired by the music of Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins, Karen Sharp moved to London in the year 2000 after graduating in composition from The Royal Northern College of Music. She became a member of Humphrey Lytellton’s band for four years, won several polls, and became first call for many visiting American artists. Nowadays she has a chair in Guy Barker’s Big Band but it is in this, her quartet with Nikki Iles, that we can hear her wonderful loping lines and warm sound at its best. Dave Green and Steve Brown are consummate performers, ensuring that we are in for a night of perfect ‘real thing’ jazz at its best.
Karen Sharp performs alongside Nikki Iles, Dave Green and Steve Brown as part of this season’s Jazz in the House. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8.30pm. The bar will be open from late afternoon for drinks and snacks.
