Event description

Description

THE LOWER BOATHOUSE is a spectacular river-side venue, intimate and atmospheric, set along side the River Cherwell in Oxford. In this context it lends itself readily to summer-time music and theatre art events.

This is the third summer season music evening in the Lower Boathouse. It promises to be a great evening of jazz. We welcome back The Oxford Jazz Trio, featuring the vocals of Maxine Day. Maxine's rich vocal is complimented by instrumental accompaniment that has a stylish sound from very accomplished musicians.

Singer Maxine who comes from a considerable jazz singing background is the real deal with a story to boot...

" JAZZ SINGER JUMPS BAIL "

After escaping apartheid-era South Africa, Maxine made her way overland, mostly in the boot or foot well of a car. She travelled through Botswana and Tanzania, then eventually with help from friends got a flight to the UK.

Fast forward 50 years, having arrived in Britain in 1963 Maxine worked with The Ray Ellington Band and met all the great names of jazz both here and in the United States.

A recent meeting with Tim Richardson from The Oxford Jazz Trio has led to Maxine performing again.

Come and hear a women with a captivating voice and incredible life story, performing with a superb band - Martin Pickett on piano, Steve Smith on bass and Tim Richardson on the drums.

FOR THE FULL STORY AND MUSIC LIVE FROM MAXINE AND THE OXFORD JAZZ TRIO, TUNE INTO RADIO OXFORD, THURSDAY 21ST 2PM


We look forward to seeing you for our final Lower Boathouse event of the year on Thursday 21st September!!!
