Live Gigs at the Vortex Jazz Club
Join London born South African singer, songwriter, pianist, Estelle Kokot with Mick Hutton on bass and Gene Calderazzo on drums at her annual pre new year Vortex performance.
Estelle, Gene and Mick last performed at The Vortex in December 2011, so this is a reunion of sorts.
Expect new material about the Fado near Faro and an online marriage proposal from a man who is otherwise engaged, to life on death row and Kublai Khan, one or two compositions by contemporary classical composer Lola Perrin and much more.
“Standards and originals perfectly compatible side by side, Kokot is an excellent arranger of her own and other peoples’ material” The Guardian, – London
“She understands the power of dramatic expression when sincerely delivered and crashes through the barriers of convention with disarming honesty. Do yourself a favour, find out where she’s performing next and catch a plane.” Going Places – South Africa
