About Me

Rose Tait is a London based Jazz singer and songwriter.

Rose has been writing songs with musician Nigel Goulding since 2004. They successfully released “The One” in 2010, a collection of original songs and Rose's interpretation of three standards.

Rose writes both words and music whilst Nigel produces the songs, accompanies on the piano and records in his studio. Rose also regularly performs in North London Jazz venues. Their collaboration has produced this debut album of 10 original songs by Rose Tait and 3 bonus tracks of Jazz standards.

Her latest offering “Bon Appetit” is about to launch (September 2014). Inspired by Viennese café culture, smatterings of accordion along with hints of Delta Blues make this long-awaited CD a real treat for Jazz lovers.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because..it echoes the rhythms of my soul. I was first exposed to jazz... by a Tarzan movie! Shorty Rogers wrote the score for a whole roomful of Cuban percussionists - as a kid, I was blown away I met [musician name]...Annie Ross, backstage at Ronnie Scott's The best show I ever attended was...Ray Charles The first jazz record I bought was... Charled Mingus Ah-Um My advice to new listeners... Listen to what you LIKE, not what you feel you should. Your ear will grow Or whatever else you have in mind. Jazz is a joy, a solace, a celebration, a communion of souls, a community of friends, a way of life.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
