Friday March 16th, 'Caffe Vista, Up-Close & Personal!' proudly presents the return of:
REMI HARRIS TRIO. After a fantastic 2017, the Trio embark on an extensive Spring Tour of the UK & Ireland for 2018!
The 'sold-out' performance almost a year ago in Caffe Vista was part of a year of continued recognition for the Remi Harris Trio. Remi continued to hone his guitar playing & develop his thoroughly unique style & repertoire. In addition to receiving glowing performance reviews, Remi was recognised in the Guitar Category of the British Jazz Awards, coming 2nd only to the long-time master & 'legend', Martin Taylor (MBE)! With such a growing profile, the Trio launch into 2018 with a tour of 44 performances at prestigious venues throughout the UK & Ireland. We are very proud to be part of this.
For several years, The Trio has been developing a style where they take Gypsy Swing characteristics & infuse them with influences from Jazz, Blues, Rock'n'Roll, Funk, World Music & more. They play an eclectic mix of original compositions, jazz standards & new arrangements of music from Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, Peter Green & more. The Trio features Remi on a variety of acoustic and electric guitars accompanied by a 'hot club' rhythm section of acoustic guitar and double bass. They have toured worldwide as well as performing at Buckingham Palace, Montreal Jazz Festival, BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with Jamie Cullum, on BBC 4 Television and live on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3.
Joining Remi, will be Mike Green (double bass) & Caley Groves (guitar)... the long-standing rhythm section that has given Remi Harris the platform to produce some of the most innovative swing-based guitar playing, in the world today.
