Last Summer’s Tealights

Saturday, 10 September 2016 - 4:00pm

Joe Browne saxophones

Hal Hutchison marimba/piano

Shirley Smart cello

Demi Garcia Sabat percussion

Michele Montolli double bass

Strong melodies, jazz harmonies and a potent sense of nostalgia are some of the words associated with the music of Last Summer’s Tealights. Part classical, part folk, part pop, part hymnal, the music is a peculiar hotchpotch of shared influences.

The idea for LST was conceived through a series of saxophone/marimba duets emerging during a winter spent in Scotland, which were eventually expanded under more southern skies.

LST brings together experienced players from a diverse range of musical backgrounds, including jazz, classical, flamenco and middle-eastern.

‘..their unique fusion of jazz, folk, pop and classical was dramatic and thrilling – particularly haunting solos from cellist Shirley Smart. The quieter, marimba driven moments, played by Hal Hutchison, were moving, providing balance to this excellent set.’ Queen’s Radio
