“An exciting jazz duo whose comical timing is as good as their musical timing”


"Much Ado" is something a bit different

It's a show aimed at people who don't necessarily like jazz...as well as those who do!

After years on the road we have lost track of the number of concert-goers complaining that much jazz is aloof, self-indulgent and lacking in any real melodic content: jazz which is sometimes sarcastically referred to as 'Meet-me-at-the-end-Jazz'. As a result, we revisit some much-loved (mostly) jazz classics and present them with a lot of energy so that the audience not only feel more involved, but also gain an insight into how jazz musicians work on stage. If you add to that a large dose of dry humour you'll hopefully start to get a feel for what our performance is all about


“Jazz fans relished in the exciting renditions of the different standards and yet the non-jazz fans were still completely engaged in the music”

“I dislike jazz, but I loved that!”
