Jazz at George IV – Shireen Francis & The Small Island Project

May 26 @ 7:30 pm BST

Shireen Francis & The Small Island Project integrating jazz harmonies with the Afro -Caribbean rhythms of Reggae and Calypso

This exciting line-up put together and fronted by the multi-talented singer Shireen Francis is unique in integrating jazz harmonies with the Afro -Caribbean rhythms of Reggae and Calypso, creating an unusual, but highly accessible musical hybrid.

Shireen’s rich and multi-layered vocal style is heard to good effect on this highly atmospheric fusion of musical genres, having worked with some of the biggest names in the business including Billy Ocean, Mark Murphy, Roberto Pla, Benny Green, Jim Mullen and John Etheridge and the late great Humphrey Lyttelton.

Guitarist Dominic Grant is one of the most in-demand musicians on the UK circuit, having regularly worked with such luminaries as Harry Belafonte, Cy Grant, Ronnie Laws, Eduardo Niebla and Courtney Pine. Mark Cherrie is unique as a player within the steel pan community, leading the UK’s only steel pan jazz quartet. Mark’s steel pan playing has seen him work with Gary Barlow, Edwin Starr and Jimmy Ruffin among many others. Larry Bartley is one of the most sought-after bass players on the London jazz scene having worked with bands led by such luminaries as Courtney Pine, Cleveland Watkiss, Julian Joseph and Soweto Kinch.
