“Proper jazz piano, excellent band ****....” - Dave Gelly, The Observer
“Mellow and stylish” - Clive Davis, The Sunday Times
“A bright and auspicious debut. She swings, is confident and has an engaging delivery, what’s not to like?” - John Martin, Jazz Rag
“A refreshing tribute to pianist singers like herself: Diana Krall, Nina Simone, Eliane Elias” –Jazzwise Magazine
Wendy Kirkland is the product of an incredibly musical family who is largely self taught; well, at least for jazz! Her voice has attracted comments such as “lucid warmth” (The JazzMann) and “vocal acrobatics” (Bebop Spoken Here). She has been a regular on the UK jazz circuit since 2002 and has been praised highly by fellow musicians Jim Mullen, Alan Barnes and Roger Beaujolais for her innate musicianship.
Her voice has been compared to Blossom Dearie and Diana Krall and her pianistic style, with complex harmonic voicings, has been described as a happy marriage of Wynton Kelly and Eliane Elias.
Pat Sprakes – guitar
Pat cut his jazz teeth with Tony Kofi, Darius Brubeck and has performed for Robben Ford. As a guitarist, his biggest influences are Wes Montgomery and George Benson, and he has a great love of latin rhythms. He is an excellent accompanist as well as a clear and melodic soloist.
Paul Jefferies – double bass
A hugely entertaining player with an inventive, lyrical approach he is well known for his superb sense of time and rhythmic playing. He can be seen all around the UK performing with an array of ensembles and luminaries including Tommaso Starace, Tina May, Nicolas Meier and Art Themen: he’s a member of GYPSY FIRE, the Frank Hockney Project, the Ben Holder Quartet/Quintet and his own chord-less trio, TANTRUM.
Jon Richmond - drums
