Deirdre Cartwright’s ‘PLAY’ Group with Louise Elliott, Alison Rayner, Simon Pearson

Don’t miss this special reunion from the Cartwright group of the 1990’s who represented the UK at the Festival of European Jazz in Mexico City.

Original jazz fusion and latin tunes by Deirdre Cartwright from the albums Debut and Play,
feature the sax and virtuoso flute playing of Louise Elliott, bass Alison Rayner and Simon Pearson on drums.

“If there is a more complete guitarist in contemporary music than Deirdre Cartwright – I’d like to know who it is” Dave Gelly The Observer

“Cartwright’s coolly undulating Grant Green shuffle groove is one of the understated pleasure of UK’s contemporary fusion.” John Fordham
