Preview: Aurora with Zoë Gilby & Noel Dennis livestreaming from GCT

(Press release)


Friday 16 April, 8pm, Live Online, £7.50 per household.

Vocalist and songwriter Zoë Gilby has teamed up with jazz trumpet / flugelhorn player Noel Dennis, double bassist Andy Champion, guitarist Mark Williams and drummer Russ Morgan for this exciting new project. 

“Aurora” Inspired by the compositions of Noel’s trumpet and flugelhorn hero, Tom Harrell. This melodic, sharply conceived music has been augmented with lyrical interpretations written by Zoë, Illustrating further Harrell’s intricate ideas and serene delivery. 

Tom Harrell is widely recognised as one of the most creative and dynamic jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time with a career spanning nearly 50 years. The innovative unparalleled harmonic and rhythmic sophistication within Tom Harrell’s writing will be performed and lyrically heightened by this stellar line up.​

“The lyrics work and this audience responded with enthusiasm. But Zoe’s voice is not just the vehicle for words but also an opportunity to be an instrument contributing to the total texture, colour and sound of the performance”

“The whole band tight and together for a ten plus minute climax to the performance, taking the audience with them to a triumphal close.” Review From Gala Theatre

Presented with Jazz North East.​
