Blue Room Sessions
Artist/Band: Hinano Reia
50'/60's Jazz sound. A vintage live recording.
At the beginning of the 90's, one fine summer's day, a loose jam session was arranged at a small recording studio in London. What emerged was a collection of spontaneous performances involving some influential figures in jazz today.
HINANO began singing jazz in the late 80's. Her earliest collaboration was with veteran pianist Colin 'Barney' Bates. After guesting with British Dixieland saxophonist and bandleader Harry Gold, she worked on the London circuit before moving to New York to explore new genres of music. Pianist VERYAN WESTON is best known for his work with British avant-garde musicians vocalist Phil Minton and saxophonist Lol Coxhill. Bassist GARY CROSBY is a founder member of the original Jazz Warriors and leads Gary Crosby's Nu Troop, Gary Crosby Trio, Guava, Jazz Jamaica and Jazz Jamaica All Stars. Drummer NANA TSIBOE toured the US at the height of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, sharing stages with Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X. Artists he has worked with include Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye and Paul McCartney.
