In addition to performing at London venues including Ronnie Scotts, the 606 Club, Cadogan Hall, PIzza Express Jazz Club, here are some of the notable projects in which LVP have been involved:
We have a long-standing relationship with Italian vocalist and circle song practitioner, Albert Hera. We'd been introduced to circle songs by Roger Treece and Bobby McFerrin, and when we met Albert at the London Acappella Festival, he immediately commandeered us for a performance. Since then, we have met up with him in Italy, and brought him to London for gigs and workshops.
We plan to bring him back to London in 2016.
Mirrors (Kenny Wheeler & Norma Winstone)
Pete had a long-standing relationship with Kenny, having championed his music and directed his big band for many years. In the 1990s, Pete was part of a small vocal group which performed a suite Kenny had written for voices.
In LVP, Pete had a group which could perform the suite, and we did so at the Vortex in Dalston, and at St James Piccadilly as part of the London Jazz Festival.
The suite was recorded in the summer of 2012, with Kenny contributing a new piece. Visit our page about the album here
In 2014, we performed a song from the suite at Kenny's memorial service
Johnny Dankworth & Cleo Laine
LVP performed with the UK jazz legends at a London Jazz Festival gala event. We performed Johnny's arrangement of Blues in the Night, and backed Cleo and daughter Jacqui.
The concert was to be Johnny's last performance.
Since then, LVP have made several visits to the couple's venue the Stables, performing in the garden and at their annual Christmas celebration
