Featured Gig: Faye Patton Live at Jazz Cafe Posk

Women in Jazz Media in partnership with Jazz Cafe Posk present their first event of the year!

Faye Patton and her funky quartet present an evening of songs from her back catalogue and current and forthcoming releases: ‘Soul Retrieval’ and ‘Soho Nights’ at Jazz Cafe Posk on Friday January 6th.  This is contemporary red hot Nu Jazz with a Latin/bossa vibe and a vintage twist – soaring, soulful vocals, glittering guitars, blistering piano hooks and a super tight rhythm section.

‘Crisply soulful … Patton’s compositions are strong, her lyrics intriguing, her playing pleasingly angular. A definite stand-out from the crowd.’ (Jazzwise Magazine)

Faye Patton is a singer-songwriter, pianist and classically trained guitarist – she writes original songs in jazz idiom which combine jazz, funk, pop, folk, gospel and blues influences with a classic sound that recalls the great Jazz divas of the past. Her vocals, (with a register that stretches to heights, depths and lengths that make audiences gasp) have been compared to Judy Garland and Joni Mitchell. Her prodigious piano playing has been compared to Ray Charles and Horace Silver. A powerful lyricist and prodigious producer of 5 independent releases, her songs contain an inspirational LGBT flavour rarely seen on the jazz scene. She is currently the resident in house musician at art deco cocktail jazz venue Bermondsey Arts Club.
