“...a class act. Great soulful swing delivered with wry humour.”
BBC Radio 3
Founded by guitarist/singer Simon Harris, Trio Manouche is a world-class gypsy jazz ensemble that perform a mixture of traditional classic “swing” tunes and upbeat “quirky” originals. Simon’s CV includes performances with legends of the gypsy jazz style such as Tchavolo Schmitt as well as work with next generation artists such as MOBO Award-winner Soweto Kinch. And if you get lucky Simon may even sing and play trumpet (not at the same time, of course…)! Since their founding in 2005, they have been featured at premier venues and Festivals including Ronnie Scott’s, King’s Place, Barbican, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown & London Jazz Festival. The trio is completed by Kourosh Kanani-guitar & Marcus Penrose-bass, with tonight’s special guests Dave Kelbie-guitar, Jason Cooper-drums & the wonderful Francesca Confortini-vocals. So, the biggest trio in the world...
