The concert is to raise awareness and funds for the organisation Target – a Charity specialising in supporting research and care for those suffering from Ovarian Cancer.
The concert has been organised by Paul Jolly, Executive Producer for ‘33’, whose wife, Dr Barbara Heins, tragically died earlier this year at the age of 47 from this devastating disease.
The concert also coincides with the 33rd year of jazz activity organised by 33 – from humble beginnings as a regular weekly jazz club to the development of a leading jazz label that has to date released over 250 albums of contemporary jazz and world music – featuring artists from the UK, Europe, the States and Japan, etc.
Artists featuring on the 28th include the Tina May Quartet with Nikki Iles, Mark Hodgson and Stephen Keogh. Among guests playing are Karen Sharp, Theo Travis and Stewart Curtis and the classical violinist Olivia Scheepers. Other surprise guests on the night!!
Its fitting for Tina to feature on this concert as she has long been associated with the label and has released 13 albums with ’33’, including the critically acclaimed album, ‘The Ray Bryant Songbook’ recorded in New York with piano legend Ray Bryant.

Awesome Rhythm section of Niki Iles Piano, Mark Hodgson Bass, Stephen Keogh Drums, Tina May on Vocals, with special guests Karen Sharp & Theo Travis on tenors.
A beautiful String Quartet played in the interval while Uncle Ian Shaw did a marvellous job of hosting the Auction & Raffle.
