    John Crawford is one of the finest Latin/Jazz pianists on the scene, and brings impressive technique and musicianship to his blend of jazz, flamenco and Latin. He has worked with the likes of Latin legends Airto Moreira and Giovanni Hidalgo as well as UK based artists such as Snowboy and Roberto Pla. In addition his non-Latin work includes gigs with the likes of Bjork, Tanita Tikarem and Kirsty McColl. He is known as one of this country’s leading exponents of Spanish music and his set tonight will be a mixture of classic flamenco re-workings and latin jazz. His latest cd CD “Ulia River of Time” was nominated for ‘Best Jazz Recording’ in the 2013 Independent Music Awards. “Glorious, skilful and imaginative” - Jazzwise John Crawford – Piano Andres Tecino - Percussion Andy Hamil – Bass plus guests Oriole Back already due to popular demand playing a set of brand new material and songs from their previous albums. Oriole fuse lyrical world music with jazz spontaneity to create an aural form of Magical Realism. Their members consist of some of the most established figures in the new British Jazz scene and are perhaps one of the few groups whose core lineup feature two Mercury nominated artists: Ben Davis on cello and Seb Rochford on drums. The South American side of Oriole with specialists John Crawford, Andres Tecino and bass player Andy Hamil joining the lineup for a specially one off night of Latin and Flamenco Jazz. Jonny Phillips – Guitar Idris Rahman – Sax/Clarinet Ben Davis – Cello John Crawford – Piano Andres Tecino – Percussion Andy Hamil – Bass “Expect waltzes, gentle samba, persuasive grooves, poignant themes and uplifting melodies that’ll make you smile, think and want to dance” -Timeout London
