Babelfish is a joint project with Brigitte Beraha (vocals) and Barry Green (piano).
This project includes a mix of their unique originals, well known songs from the jazz, Latin and popular repertoires as well as music inspired by classical composers Britten, Copland, and Ned Rorem, and literary works through E. E. Cummings to Raymond Carver.
Babelfish shows a wide range of influences from Kenny Wheeler, Chico Buarque, British folk music, Norma Winstone, French chanson and Paul Bley. It also documents a working relationship of over twelve years between Beraha and Green.
The group features internationally renowned musicians Chris Laurence on bass (John Surman, Sarah Vaughan, Peter Gabriel) and Paul Clarvis (Norma Winstone, Matthew Barley, Lee Konitz) on percussion.
All four members bring their wide range of influences and experience to the project to create a unique sound.
Be prepared for beautiful music and for the unexpected.
This tour celebrates the release of their new album Babelfish, recorded live at the famous Abbey Road Studios and released on Moletone records.
"Beraha and Green clearly have a close musical rapport, his fluent, robust piano complementing her strong but affecting voice perfectly, and Babelfish's forthcoming recording should be well worth investigating." - Chris Parker, Live Review at Vortex Jazz Club, London
"Barry Green's work can be both intricate and assertive, and is constantly inventive." - Pete Martin, Jazz UK
"If sheer talent were the only ingredient needed for success in music, Brigitte would already be up there with the stars. She has a tremendous future to explore, one which we’ll be watching with great expectations”. Dame Cleo Laine and John Dankworth CBE
