A highly regarded vocalist is performing at the Bedford Arms’ Monday Nighy Jazz at the beginning of next week.
Atila Huseiyn will be joined by top Pianist Rob Barron, Upright Bassist Tom Farmer and event organiser Mark Hale at the Drums.
Atila is a strong, confident performer, Atila began singing at the age of 15 with local big band Young Jazz then in 2002 was invited to work with the UK National Youth Jazz Orchestra performing nationwide and overseas to great acclaim.
In April 2006 Atila toured with the legendary Buddy Greco and earned a new fan in the process.
Buddy said: “I was knocked out by Atila. He has the voice and the class to showthe world what great music is all about”.
Buddy invited Atila to tour the UK with him again in the summer of 2008, the highlight being an appearance with the BBC Big Band at the 30th Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, later broadcast on BBC Radio 2 Big Band Special.
Still in his mid twenties Atila has gone on to establish himself as one of Britain’s most exciting vocal talents.
Rob Barron draws influences from classic groups of the hardbop era such as Wynton Kelly and the Ray Brown Trio. Upright Bassist Tom Farmer is well known for being part of the MOBO winning Jazz ensemble Empirical.
Music will commence at 8.30pm. Although there is no admission charge guests are encouraged to give a suggested donation of £5 each, which pays the musicians for their performance.
