The UK is home to some of the world's finest music academies, several of them are in London and one in particular, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, is virtually on Toulouse Lautrec's doorstep. We've decided to offer GSMD students a residency they can call their own, to give our audience and us an opportunity to get to know these exceptional up and coming young players. We'll be seeing a lot of them in the future, but why wait?
Come down any Monday night and enjoy a lot of them right now.

This week Guildhall in Focus presents

Luca Manning (Vocals) & David Swan (Piano)

Luca Manning is a young jazz vocalist newly based in London, in his first year on the Guildhall School of Music Jazz course. Luca has made his name as an up-and-coming jazz artist performing at the Glasgow, Edinburgh and Islay Jazz Festivals as well as the 2016 BBC Proms as a member of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland alongside Liane Carroll and Iain Ballamy.

He is inspired by a wide range of artists such as Mark Murphy and Carmen McRae as well as the more contemporary sounds of Kenny Wheeler and Theo Bleckmann – who often inspire Luca’s original compositions.

“Youthful, gorgeous, comforting sound…”
Seonaid Aitken, Jazz on BBC Radio Scotland

Come and hear Luca perform an eclectic selection of tunes at the wonderful Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Venue, alongside the very talented David Swan on piano.
