Last Show: Thursday 16 th December 2021

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Rachel's new album 'A Million Conversations' was described as 'a revelation' by Jazz Views. She is fast establishing herself as one of London's finest newcomers, with regular appearances at some of the capital's top Jazz venues. She is renowned for her lively and emotive style, together with her eclectic repertoire of classic Jazz, modern material and her achingly tender original pieces.  Her background in theatre adds an extra dimension to her performance, which is both exciting and moving for her audiences.  Tonight she will be singing classics from The Great American Songbook, beautiful Jazz arrangements of Christmas cheer and a selection of her own material. Amongst Rachel's band members is a very fine headline act in his own right - the versatile and brilliant Roland Perrin.  On drums, the extraordinary Paul Robinson, who played with Nina Simone for many years, and the contagious grooves of multi-talented bass player, Curtis Ruiz.
