LYRICS ARE THE DRIVING FORCE OF THIS ENSEMBLE
Founded by the late legendary composer and pianist Michael Garrick MBE the Lyric Ensemble continues with the fabulous Nikki Iles on piano. Tony Woods saxes, part of the original line up, now leads. The beautifully lyrical Nette Robinson continues her contribution on vocals with a voice that it would be hard to tire of listening to. Many of the Garrick numbers that are to be performed at Wakefield were written specifically for Nette and her cool timbre will add to their poetic origins. Matt Ridley’s familiar bass is still there underpinning this drum free quartet. The Tony Woods Lyric Ensemble appears at Wakefield Jazz on Friday 26th April 2013.
