The Rich Taylors
25 Jan 2013 Vortex Jazz Club 8.30 pm
The Rich Taylors is a merging of Blink (Fincker, Clarvis and Mick) with The Mediums (Fincker, Courtois and Erdmann). Robin Finker is the catalyst, through playing in both bands. Along with projects such as Barbicana (http://towerofjazz.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/barbacana-review-culture-jazz.html) and Tweedleedee, which are funded through a scheme called Jazz Shuttle that supports French and British musicians playing in both Britain and France. The Rich Taylors are in effect 'sponsored' by the Vortex Jazz Club and Banlieu Bleues in Paris. The Vortex gig will be the culmination of two days of rehearsals with a focus on the music of Vincent Courtois, who is perhaps one of the most in-demand cellist around. This will be his first gig in London since he played at a Loop festival held at the Vortex where the live CD Twice was recorded on Babel Label.
