18:45 Ross Gordon  drums


19:45 Rosie Stano  flute

 Exciting young jazz flautist, Rosie Stano returns to The Talking Heads in Southampton on Wednesday 23rdMay at 7:45pm presenting an impressive set of modern jazz.

Extending the repertoire of the flute from contemporary reinventions of Ellington standards to celebrating current British composers such as Jason Rebello, Wednesday’s gig will also feature the premier performance of Rosie’s new tune “Farewell”.

Described by the UK’s leading jazz flute player, Gareth Lockrane, as “an instinctive improviser and forward thinking composer/arranger”, the Southampton-based flautist stages her final performance as a student at the University of Southampton before returning to London.

This versatile septet features Will Jenkins on trumpet and flugelhorn, Taz Morra on saxophones, Ben Jameson on guitar, Luke Richardson on piano, Will Scott-Hartley on bass and Rob Pemberton on drums. Not to be missed!


21:00 Teresina 'Taz' Morra  saxophone

 Live and Kicking Modern Jazz –
Taz performs with vitality and excitement making her interpretation of modern jazz charts truly unique. This year she juxtaposes her signature powerful Tenor sound with the delicacy of Soprano making for an emotional journey for what has been a rollercoaster of a final year at University. With the backing of her excellent band, she hopes to put on a show that punches with full-on funk and one that will linger in the minds of all those who are a part of the experience.


22:15 Luke Richardson  piano

 For one night only, see pianist Luke Richardson perform live at the Talking Heads Pub in Southampton, for an evening of fresh and exciting jazz. A composer in his own right, Luke is also inspired by current jazz icons such as Robert Glasper and Branford Marsalis.

Having formed ‘The Luke Richardson Trio’ in his first year at university, the group are well accustomed to gigs at weddings, restaurants and parties, and performed recently at Bournemouth Jazz Club.

Signed to London’s ‘Limelight’ agency, the trio are looking to break onto the jazz scene in the capital, and build on recent experiences, which include performances with Derek Nash (lead sax in Jools Holland’s Big Band) and Alan Barnes, and at the jazz festivals in Montreux and Vienna.
