SW01
Quality Jazz Swing Band

Led by dynamic trumpeter and vocalist Andy, this is a vibrant jazz group who play accessible and enjoyable jazz in a variety of popular styles that range from New Orleans through Swing and Jump-Jive to Bop, Latin and Funk, moving from Duke Ellington, via Louis Armstrong to Miles Davis and beyond.

Considered to be 'The Who's Who of Jazz in The South of England' the band features several names whose jazz reputations are both national and international. The band's wide repertoire, crafted arrangements and enthusiasm for gritty and unusual numbers has won them a popular following amongst young and older audiences. In addition to Andy on trumpet and vocals, the band includes saxophone / clarinettist, and the rhythm section of drums, bass, guitar and piano.  For background music the group can perform as a quartet.

For concerts, recordings and often by specific request from clients, the frontline can also include trombone. Much of the band's private work involves playing at weddings and parties. In these contexts the band will play at a volume where people can dance but still talk. The band will select its repertoire the popular end of the jazz spectrum, but will gladly accommodate specific jazz requests where appropriate.
