JAZZ STARTS BLOW FANS AWAY. Jazz in its variety and spontaneity brought magical riffs to Sunbury House when the 13th Barbados Jazz Festival opened. Performing at the tree-lined venue were Roy Hargrove on trumpet and flugelhorn, and vocalist Roberta Gambarini, who surprised the packed house by making her voice sound exactly like a trumpet. She sang for most of the show, but cupped her hands over the microphone midway in the set, and blew patrons away with her "riffs". The real riffs, however, came from Hargrove who, in tandem with saxophonist Justin Robinson, ended the show with a mixture of funky forays and Afro-Cuban rhythms.

The 13th Barbados Jazz Festival has a line-up of artists that includes Jill Scott, Lionel Ritchie, Arturo Tappin, Boney James, Cuban Jazz All-Stars as well as local artists Artwork and Wayne Willock.
"We are delighted to welcome The Sol Group on board," said Gilbert Rowe, organiser of the festival.
"It is the support of companies like Sol that allows us to showcase the acts that will grace the stage of the Barbados Jazz Festival 2006." (PR)

Jill Scott


JUST JILLIN'. Jill Scott sang her way into Bajans' hearts at the Gymnasium last night, crooning numbers like A Long Walk for which she won a Grammy award recently, as well as The Way, He Loves Me and Cross My Mind. The 32-year-old jazz, R&B and neo-soul artist from Philadelphia was the first of two headliners to appear at the seven-day Barbados Jazz Festival – the other being veteran R&B vocalist Lionel Richie, who will perform tomorrow. Along with her albums, Scott has also released a book of poetry, The Moments, The Minutes, The Hours
