Guildford Jazz - Jazz Café: Sheryl Bailey Quartet

There's no description more apt for US guitar virtuoso Sheryl Bailey than "A sizzling guitar goddess", coined by Elliot Simon of All About Jazz. He's not alone with his superlatives Adam Levy of Guitar Player Magazine calls Sheryl "One of the most compelling tones of her generation", and Frank Forte of Just Jazz Guitar ranks her "among the best bop guitar players with a fresh approach and something new." Sheryl's playing is unquestionably "sizzling". She has groomed incredible chops and impeccable taste with which she applies them. It's said (by Lee Metcalf, The Villager) that she can "go from zero to blazing in two beats", but she is continually praised for never sacrificing melody and lyricism for technique. "She balances superior technical skills with a strong lyrical sense and swinging touch…" continues Metcalf, and Joe Taylor of Soundstage says "Bailey combines an astonishing command of the fingerboard with a seemingly endless flow of melodic invention". Sheryls’ years of dedication and focus won her 3rd place in the Thelonius Monk International Jazz Guitar competition in 1995, and she was chosen as a Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department in 2000 for a South American tour. She earned "Rising Star" status on Downbeat's Critic's Poll 2013, 2014, and 2015, and she is now Professor at Berklee College of Music, and at the Collective in New York. An outstanding evening of world class jazz! "One of the top players in an emerging generation of jazz guitarists" (John Heidt, Vintage Guitar). With Ross Stanley (piano), Marianne Windham (bass) and Paul Cavaciuti (drums)

The South West Surrey Concert Band comprises bold brass, wide-ranging woodwind and pounding percussion sections with around fifty players aged from 8 to 18. Their Leavers’ Concert is an opportunity to hear some of the band’s most inspiring repertoire and features some of the older musicians in solo performance. The repertoire ranges from well known, triumphant film scores; reflective and moving ballads to a more undiscovered treasury of startlingly beautiful pieces. Always a fun and moving event. A great way to inspire future music makers that never fails to touch the hearts of the audience.
