Gateshead Jazz 2020
Nikki Yeoh and Zoe Rahman
Recognised as two of the most groundbreaking contemporary jazz composers of their generation, pianists Nikki Yeoh and Zoe Rahman will have you at the edge of your seat as they share their talents across two grand pianos. Featuring specially arranged music from their outstanding solo piano records Solo Gemini and Dreamland, this pair will challenge the boundaries of piano playing in a hugely entertaining way.
“the two pianists swapped pianos, played side by side and delivered emotions that ran deep. Rahman’s “Zantastic” and “Epicentre” referenced boogie and burlesque alongside Sturm und Drang. Yeoh’s heartfelt “Elderflower and Ivy” captured the emotions of grief in summertime, while “Be-Bop” raised spirits.”
***** Mike Hobart, Financial Times
“Nikki Yeoh is a creative free spirit who, although deeply rooted in the language of improvisation, is open to a range of music that leans as much to populism as it does high art.”
Kevin Le Gendre, writer and broadcaster BBC Radio 3
