London Vocal Project

New LVP video

London Vocal Project have just released a new video – our rendition of James Taylor’s ‘Walking Man’, from our James Taylor Songbook project.

We were delighted and honoured that James Taylor’s representatives, who’ve been following what we’re up to, offered to premiere it on his official Instagram channel! You can watch it here:

It’ll also shortly be released on LVP’s own social media pages. Our YouTube channel is here:

This video was previously uploaded to our Patreon channel, a new venture where we’ll be sharing exclusive videos, clips and other content:

Luiz Morais album launch

Here’s one I’m really looking forward to… On Sunday 24th October, Luiz Morais will launch his new album, ‘In The Weave’. He recorded it earlier this year in Brazil, featuring an elite group of musicians in Rio de Janeiro. The music is absolutely fantastic. Over several years of playing alongside Luiz in Alvorada, it’s been a pleasure to hear him developing his compositional voice, and now to see it realised in this new project.

The London launch promises to be a great gig, and features an equally talented bunch of players from the London jazz scene, who I can’t wait to play with: Gareth Lockrane (flutes), Laura Jurd (trumpet), Tom White (trombone), John Turville (piano), Misha Mullov-Abbado (double bass) and Raphael Delphino (drums), plus guests Rachel Hayter (flute) and Gabriela Kozyra (voice).

This should be a really special gig. Tickets available here:

London Vocal Project at Pizza Express

This is going to LVP’s first gig in almost two years!

We last performed at Pizza Express Jazz Club at the end of 2019. That was supposed to be the start of a new residency, but obviously those plans were derailed rather. So we’re very excited finally to be returning on Saturday 5th December – playing both a lunchtime and an evening show. We’ll be featuring music from our James Taylor Songbook project, as well as new arrangements which we worked on remotely during lockdowns, plus some of our unique LVP Christmas settings.

It’s a little way off, but this is likely to sell out very quickly, so don’t delay!

Alvorada, Brazil, choro

Alvorada 5th birthday gig

Amazingly, it’s been five years since we formed Alvorada. Time has flown! In that time, we’ve played numerous great gigs, released an album, won awards, played on the radio, travelled, and made many wonderful friends along the way.

We’re celebrating with a special anniversary gig on Wednesday 15th September at The Pheasantry in Chelsea. Hope you can join us for what should be a great occasion!
