Janet McCunn, who does a great deal to help publicize jazz gigs in South -West London, has started a monthly gig at the Retro Bistro in Teddington. Janet writes:
The monthly jazz events at Retro Bistrot in Teddington take place on the last Tuesday of every month, organised by pianist Terry Collie and myself. Last month was our first month there, and featured the Mood Indigo Jazz Quintet which we set up for the occasion with Terry on keyboard and myself on vocals along with Shura Greenberg on double bass, Karl Charity on trumpet and Jamie Trowell on drums. The evening was very well attended. We’re planning a second night there with this band in August.
We invite a special guest each month. Tuesday 29th May will feature Amy Winehouse’s guitarist Robin Banerjee with the Terry Collie Trio : Terry Collie on keyboard, Julian Bury on bass and Sam Nadel on drums. Retro Restaurant has won several awards. It’s a perfect setting for dinner jazz.
