This highly entertaining quintet presents jazz standards, classic Latin grooves & blues with their own brand of vibrancy, humour and most importantly with a whole lot of swing!
Entertainment is strictly the name of the game and wherever they perform, the response is the same – a great reaction from both jazz buffs and newcomers to the music. Much of this is due to the varied programme of generally well known tunes but always with a few surprises thrown in.
The considerable talent and wealth of experience of the instrumentalists, combined with the outstanding vocals of Irene Martin produce performances which are acclaimed by their highly appreciative audiences.
Irene’s style encompasses the feeling of Billie Holiday with the smoothness of Julie London, topped off with the sassiness of Peggy Lee. This superb combination is complemented by the tenor sax of Louis Noble and outstanding guitar skills of Alan Jeffs.
Burt Donn's harmonious bass lines provide the anchor and Mike Holmes' fluent drumming as well as Tony Tuckers' smooth trumpet style completes the line-up.
