We are thrilled to welcome vocalist Viviana Zarbo to our Jazz dinner in October. Viviana will present some of her favourite music from across the world and generations, in her fresh jazz way surrounded by a brilliant Trio: Craig Milverton on piano and Renato d’Aiello on Saxophone.
Viviana has performed in different musicals and plays in Italy and abroad, a versatile artist whose musical theatre background enriched and enhanced her naturally multifaceted jazz vibe. She is a regular performer at London’s most popular jazz clubs and currently performing in well known venues in London such as Pizza Express in Soho, where she has recently launched her debut jazz album "Take Away”, a collection of her favourite songs which are the foundations of her artistic and personal development.
Craig Milverton is firmly established as one of Britain’s Top Jazz Pianists. "An extravagantly gifted pianist with an unrivalled sense of swing" Jazz CD of the Month, Dave Gelly, The Observer.
"The best pianist to come along in Britain in the last 2 decades, and the nearest to the great Oscar Peterson", Digby Fairweather. Just two of the quotes extolling Craigs jazz talent. This has been recognised by winning the Jazz Piano Category of The British Jazz Awards in 2010. One of Britain's top jazz pianists.
Renato d’Aiello has become known as one of the strongest and most beautiful saxophone sounds around London and UK. He is running every Monday night at the Ronnie Scott’s Upstairs, and his treatments of jazz standards and originals, both live and on CD, have won great admiration from audiences and the press: "D'Aiello's weighty, behind-the-beat sound shows how a poetic imagination can rekindle a long-gone style without nostalgia... " The Guardian.
