Alice Phelps Trio
Alice Phelps Trio with long term collaborators Joe Murgatroyd on clarinet and Robyn Hemmings on bass. Playing from the heart a selection of very special vintage love songs, murder ballads and heartbreak blues.
The trio can be found in many of London’s basements, clubs and festivals with a weekly residency at the Jamboree every Sunday afternoon playing piano and singing in the jazz band ‘Prospective Collective’. Alice will often be heard exploring the sounds of the great female jazz and blues singers of the past, especially Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters, Cleo Brown and Billie Holiday.
Alice Phelps can be found with a lively hot new trio called ‘Struttin’ Time’. Sporting a fine repertoire that pays homage to the music of New Orleans, New York and the Caribbean. Led by trumpeter Jonny Enser with Geoff Threadgold on double bass. All three will be singing in harmonies and will have you tapping those toes from dusk till dawn. Think along the lines of Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong and even some Harry Belafonte.
