“[Torto’s] amazing excursions and vocal pyrotechnics… Taylor … create[s] more textures than … the complete Pantone range” – London Jazz
A welcome return to ReVoice! 2011 stars: extraordinary Italian vocalist Diana Torto (Paolo Fresu, Mike Stern, Steve Coleman) and British piano legend John Taylor (Kenny Wheeler, Norma Winstone, Lee Konitz). Their beautifully balanced and nuanced collaboration – born ten years ago – is now organically augmented by the multi-talented reeds player and composer, Julian Siegel (Partisans, Django Bates, Hermeto Pascoal). In this new project the trio explore John’s arrangements of Paul McCartney’s songs plus his own compositions and those of other contemporary composers.
“Melodically generous…from ethereal Jarrett-like introspection to rhythmically dynamic dances…impressive” – Downbeat
Andrew McCormack has built a formidable reputation as one of Britain’s leading pianists and composers. He has toured world-wide with his trio, duo with Jason Yarde and with A-listers Kyle Eastwood, Eric Alexander, Denys Baptiste and Jean Toussaint. Now resident in New York, Andrew releases his latest album with Edition Records this year.
