THE GRAHAM HUGHES TRIO: NEW OLEANS AND SWING
One of the UK's leading trombone players within the swing and New Orleans genres. He is also a popular singer, putting his own stamp on a broad repertoire of songs from classic vintage crooners to boogies and blues. And if that's not enough he blows a mean chromatic harmonica on occasions.
Over the years Graham's reputation has steadily built so that now he appears regularly as a featured artist at jazz festivals around the UK, and tours Europe and further afield with many leading jazz and swing bands. Graham has a way of involving people, audience and band alike, in the music he plays, so that everyone feels the joy and spontaneity of the performance. This is one reason why he is one of the busiest musicians in the business!
He is looking forward to bringing his trio to Crazy Coqs for the first time this January.
BOOM LA TETE
"London based band Boom La Tete, takes the essence of swing, Gypsy music, Rock'n roll and other influences to create a sound all of their own. A very high energy music, that never fails to bring people to their feet."
THE JO HARROP TRIO
The trio perform swinging jazz standards, hearty blues numbers, and late night torch songs of the world songbooks from America, Latin America & the UK.
Jo Harrop is described as a "velvet voiced" singer, who is rising on the UK scene. Recently appearing at the Royal Albert Hall as part of London Jazz Festival 2018, and a regular at The 606 club, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Hideaway and The Sage. Drawing on jazz, blues, soul & folk influences, Jo delivers a song with depth and feeling, in her distinct rich, warm & smoky tone, that swings oh so cool.
PADDY MILNER & LONDONOLA
LONDONOLA is Paddy Milner's latest project, a trio based in London playing home grown music with a healthy dose of New Orleans spirit. Milner's songs draw lines between his spiritual home of New Orleans, and his home of many years, London. The trio evokes the swamps of Louisiana juxtaposed with the bustling energy of London, continuing the tradition of British musicians exchanging influences with their American counterparts. The trio plays a set of high energy grooves, mixed with poignant blues-inflected ballads and virtuosic piano work. LONDONOLA is the meeting point of New Orleans R&B and British Rock n Roll. Expect to hear echoes of Milner's influences including James Booker, Dr John, Otis Spann, Pete Johnson, Ian Maclagan, all assimilated into his own style.
