Jazz Music Nights at CICCIC Featuring The Annika Skoogh Quartet
Featuring at Creative Innovation Centre Jazz Club is the The Annika Skoogh Quartet.
The Annika Skoogh Quartet is an exciting new band fast gaining a reputation as a force to be reckoned with and led by Annika Skoogh on vocals. Between them, they play many of the jazz circuits and festivals both locally and nationally. Their music is an innovative re-working of mainly Jazz Standards but also pop tunes through alternate time signatures, re-harmonisations and a modern aesthetic . The result is a new fresh sound where the old meets the new. Adventurous Swedish singer Annika blends an effortless, rhythmical style with a warm soulful tone and daring scatting and she has picked a fine band for this contemporary jazz project, namely Matt Carter (piano), Al Swainger (bass) and Coach York (drums) and they frame Annika’s assured vocals very well indeed. Expect to hear effortless improvisation, technical prowess, tight rhythms delivered with passion and high energy. A must see.
