A Celebration of the Legendary Talkin’ Loud and Saying Something Sessions
“Talkin’ Loud and Saying Something” or just “Dingwalls” as it was more commonly known was the session that shaped a generation, in sound, style and attitude it’s influence spread far and wide. It was the counterpoint to the rave generation’s acid revolution, taking that same spirit and optimism and applying it to a very different music. It built on the legacy of the Electric Ballroom and the jazz-dance scene that had been bubbling away since the early eighties but took things to a new level. It became the touchstone for everything that followed in it’s wake, acquiring legendary status, tempting folk to later claim that “I was there” whether they were or not. It was inspirational, revolutionary, celebratory, radical. It was a family, it was a congregation. It was our Paradise Garage. This event has once again reached out and tapped into all that was special and every year it becomes more and more legendary.
Tori Handsley is renowned for her unique take on the harp and has played with everyone from Nigel Kennedy and Orphy Robinson to Shabaka Hutchings and Moses Boyd. One of the highlights of her career was being invited to play with childhood hero, Nigel Kennedy, as part of his band for his Duke Ellington tour.
Tori recorded on the Binker & Moses album ‘Journey to the Mountain of Forever’, the Binker & Moses coming release ‘Alive in the East’, Kairos 4tet ‘Everything We Hold’ and Engines Orchestra ‘Lifecycles’. The Tori Handsley Trio debut album, with Moses Boyd and Ruth Goller, is due for release soon.
“Tori is an essential music force that needs to be experienced by as many thinking musicians and audiences as possible. She is without doubt steadily becoming one of the most exciting and original musicians on the UK scene.”
