The roots of this Newcastle based band are set in the Jazz world but they draw on their mutual love of many other genres such as Rock, Neo Soul, Pop and R&B. Expect the perfect mix of Jazz harmony with infectious grooves and memorable melodies, all topped off with the excitement of improvisation.
Taking their influence from the likes of Christian Scott, Manu Katche, Chris Potter, Roller Trio and Joshua Redman yet still managing to create their own individual sound. Their debut was made at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2014 to an enthusiastic audience and had a great reception when they supported The Slowlight Quartet in Jan 2015. Their full length live album was release in 2016 on Jazz Sound Records.
Line-up: Jamie Toms – (lead) sax, Pawel Jedrzejewski – guitar, Richard Campbell – piano, Ian Paterson – bass guitar and Mark Johnson – drums.
