Not content to be put in a box, this jazz collective's repertoire reflects diverse influences and deep musical loves. It's all about crossing musical genres in a Jazz context... Expect to be pleasantly surprised when you hear Nat King Cole between The Doors and Joni Mitchell, or world beats on a '70's pop ballad, followed by a Billie Holliday classic, or swing-infused Sting. Performing a wide range of classics & standards, new & old, the group draws inspiration from many genres to create a truly memorable experience. In their own unique style, whether as an intimate Duo or a dynamic Quartet, the group fuses the music with soul & sincerity, giving each song it's own special sound.
Featuring Simone Morris (Vocals), Mike Freedman (Guitar), Mike Pelletier (Bass)
