Scarborough lose Loussier - Gain Rees-Williams.

The sad news from next month's Scarborough Jazz Festival is that French pianist Jacques Loussier has had to pull out because of illness. Disappointing as this is the good news is that he is being replaced by the David Rees-Williams Trio.
Piano/organ virtuoso Rees-Williams has, in the opinion of many, taken the concept of classical pieces performed in a jazz context to an even higher level than that of Loussier who pioneered the format in the 1960s.
The prospect of hearing David at The Spa's Bosendorfer grand as well as at the Hammond is a mouth watering prospect indeed.
Radio Three's Jazz Line Up are recording the concert which is good but not as good as being there in person and hearing it live in the newly re-furbished Grand Hall of The Spa.
The Festival runs from Friday Sept. 23 to Sunday Sept. 25 with the Rees-Williams Trio concert closing the Saturday session at 10:30pm.
