Product Notes

Ray Eveleigh was born in the Rhondda Valley, South Wales. For his B.Sc. Degree he studied Physics and Mathematics at the University of Wales and also studied Music at the College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. His professional career has been mostly spent teaching and lecturing in Pure and Applied Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. He worked for three years as a Mathematical Programmer with the Atomic Power Division of English Electric in the 1960's, when he became an Associate Member of the Institute of Nuclear Engineers. He was ordained as a Priest in the Anglican Church in 1977. He studied Theology at the University of Hull where he was awarded an MA. He is also a trained Counselor. His music is his ministry. He is also an accomplished Snooker player! Throughout his life he has been involved in music making of various kinds, ranging from accompanying his wife, Brenda Kirk, to playing in Jazz Clubs and Restaurants. Rev-Ray has written a Jazz Course which is taught in the UK and the USA. He has traveled to many parts of the world and has played in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and the USA. His favorite pianists are Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Keith Jarret. He is known as Revray for obvious reasons. Ray's first CD produced in Jan 2000 contains many favorite Jazz Standards including Gershwin's 'I've Got Rhythm,' and S'Wonderful': Duke Ellington's 'Mood Indigo' and 'I've Got It Bad.' The vocalist Brenda Kirk is a singer of velvet tones; the bass is played immaculately by Bob Malinovski, and drums by Brian Ward give a great swinging platform for Revray's piano playing. BRENDA KIRK-EVELEIGH is Revray's wife and is the vocalist with Revray Music. Though classically trained, Brenda has adapted naturally to singing Jazz. She is herself well known on the UK East Coast; for some years she worked as a BBC producer/presenter on a variety of programmes . Her singing shows clear evidence of the influence of Ella Fitzgerald. Brenda's most well loved songs include 'Autumn Leaves' and 'Someone To Watch Over Me'.
