Lucia Cadotsch + Zoe Rahman at the 2022 Cheltenham Jazz Festival

Cheltenham Jazz Festival. 29 April 2022. Parabola Arts Centre. Live Reviews by Jon Turney) Friday evening saw two Cheltenham festival returnees in new ensembles who each delivered stunning music. Swiss singer Lucia Cadotsch was as spare and restrained as ever, her rhythm and phrasing distinctively jazz-inflected but leaving improvisation largely to her bandmates. As they are the trio of Kit Downes, piano, Phil Donkin, bass and James Maddren, drums, this works satisfyingly well. She is piloting a Rolls and she knows it.
