Trailblazing cellist Shirley Smart is recognized as one of the UKs most versatile and creative string players.
Her trio showcases the vast array of her musical influences, drawing on her unique background living in Jerusalem for 10 years and working with the overlapping worlds of jazz, Arabic, Turkish and North African music, and with artists such as Avishai Cohen, Omer Avital and Yasmin Levy.
It features two of the UK’s leading lights in world-influenced jazz – John Crawford on piano, and Demi Garcia Sabat on percussion
Smart has established herself firmly on both the jazz and world music scenes since moving back to London, working with artists including Neil Cowley, Mulatu Astatke, Robert Mitchell, Misha Mullov-Abaddo, Maciek Pysz and Alice Zawadzki. She is also a founder member of Issie Barratt’s Interchange Dectet, whose debut album ‘Donna’s Secret’ has just been released, and has appeared at numerous festivals in the UK and abroad.
She is currently Head of Performance at City University, and gives frequent workshops for organisations such as the National Youth Jazz Collective, Jazzlines, and Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
“… some of the most inventive use of the cello I’ve heard for some time.” Kind of Jazz
