Harmonia Jazz Workshop: Lily Dior, Budapest Jazz Club, 14 September
Discovered by the late great bassist Jackie Orszaczky in Australia as a teenager, performing a show she wrote and produced on the life of Billie Holiday, singer Lily Dior became a seminal member of Sydney’s hottest Soul/Funk outfit, ‘The Godmothers’, wowing audiences with her electric stage presence and powerful voice.

“If you see only one local band this year, make sure you catch this shimmering and wonderful soul funk act” (Bruce Elder, SMH)

Awarded a grant in 2000, Lily travelled to New York to study with jazz legend Mark Murphy, and was invited to perform at one of his rare appearances.

That same year, she was singled out by legendary arranger/pianist Dave Matthews to perform with The Manhattan Jazz Quintet, which included Bill Evans, Charnett Moffatt, Victor Lewis, and Lew Soloff, at Sydney Casino’s Lyric Theatre.

Returning to her roots, Lily has spent the last two years in London building her reputation and has already established herself as an in demand performer appearing regularly at iconic jazz venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, The 606 Club and Pizza Express Soho.

At the BJC she will be backed by an incredible trio of Róbert Lakatos on piano, Krisztián Pecek Lakatos on bass and Dávid Hodek on drums.

Date and time: 14 September, 8 pm
