Expect a whole lot of fun and “you’re heartstrings to be pulled” at a Louise Balkwill (vocals) Chris Eldred (piano), and Theo Malk-Wishart (double bass) trio gig!
They’re bringing their triumphant New Orleans sound to the TL Jazz Club and we can’t wait! You’ll be enjoying an evening with three parts of Louise’s quintet – Louise and the Mailmen.
Find your toes, tapping and seats nearly elevating during this dinner and a show with an extensive repertoire gliding from sunshiney tunes like “When You’re Smiling” “Shake It But Don’t Break It”. For Louise, there is no fourth wall, you’ll leave, feeling like part of the family.
Louise’s love for New Orleans runs deep and she’s had the pleasure of performing with some of the greatest, even recording a new track for New Orleans great, Leroy Jones, Sweeter Than a Summer Breeze, his composition featuring her lyrics and vocals. Of her talent Leroy says:
“Her voice and everything else that comes with the package of a master vocalist is pure soul, swing and fire!”
Don’t think you could ask for a better endorsement than that.
As a lyricist, multi-instrumentalist – boasting some great jazz guitar and trumpet, Louise is passionate about performance and can’t get enough of the inspiration, pride and delight gained by collaborating with some of the best musicians on the scene today, having the pleasure of working with: Barry Harris, Ofer Landsberg, Liane Carroll and Brigette Beraha to name but a few.
Louise can be found, spreading her joy and talents from Oliver’s in Greenwich, Ronnie Scotts and the immersive, One Night Records. With big plans for 2022, you better catch her and a couple of her mailmen while you can!
