4.30-5.30  Ed Rice - featuring David Guttierres

Reigate’s own Ed Rice is one of the UK’s most outstanding jazz piano artists, a regular on the London and West End circuit, working with many of the country’s leading jazz acts. Joining Ed today on vocals is David Guttierres. After being introduced to Frank Sinatra by his grandmother, it seemed only natural for David to sing swing. His background spans Jazz singing studies at Birmingham Conservatoire, to performing with big bands, including the Midlands Youth Jazz Orchestra at Chris Evans’s CarFest. Dave is delighted to be reunited with his long-time partner in crime, Ed Rice today. Expect some classy and exciting jazz from this quality duo.
