Trombonist, Rosie Turton, joins us for the next Jazz Herstory session as she leads her own band with trance-like, grooving adventurous pickings from her new EP.

About Rosie Turton

Regularly touring across the country, Europe and worldwide with Nerija (Parlimentary Jaz Award Winners 2017), Where Pathways Meet, and her own band (on Jazz Re:freshed records), Rosie brings her band to Poplar Union, featuring the exploratory and inventive new music from her recently released EP. Her motivic trace-like style and strong full tone glides into melodic riffs and lines, shaping beautiful music with foundations of intricate grooves. Her music is joyous and moving, influenced by Alice Coltrane and the like, eclectic and exciting.


About Jazz Herstory

Jazz Herstory presents female led bands playing jazz now, spanning styles, sounds and generations. Showcasing the richness of jazz being made in the UK today and celebrating the women who contribute, Jazz Herstory presents award winning bands and instrumentalists, composers of national and international acclaim and people making waves locally.

They aim to share: to bring women from the background to a balanced foreground in jazz. Female instrumentalists have not been part of the story of jazz as much as their male counterparts and we want to play a part in writing a more balanced story from here on in and dissolve stereotypes in the process.
