3rd Jane Parker

Jane Parker’s breathy vocals, reminiscent of Rickie Lee Jones or sometimes Billie Holiday are both sultry and steamy as the bayou itself’ Blueprint.London-based jazz singer Jane Parker sings regularly in and around the capitol and has performed at venues which include Ronnie Scott’s, 606 Club, Quaglinos and the Cafe de Paris. Her many influences include Blossom Dearie, Jackie Paris, Eddie Jefferson and Jon Hendricks.

10th Heidi Vogel

Heidi Vogel could be an apple-cheeked Swiss Miss in a dirndl yodelling folksongs on an Alpine hillside. Far from it, this one is a charismatic brown-skinned Londoner with a sunny smile and glorious voice that invests soul into everything she sings.  When she hits a note just right, her throat swells open to deliver a mighty vibrato rich note with a life of its own. When you can do this, it hardly matters what you’re singing. But Vogel has taste and saves the fireworks for key moments.

17th – Artie and Jake Zaitz Duo

This first class affair is run by the electric duplet of well refined guitar marvels. Blood relatives of polish heritage join forces here to present a unique take on a jazz song book, exploring carefully selected familiar and obscure works. Their combined musical authority stretches across a wealth of influences. Jake’s nearly two decades as Dana Gillespie’s guitar supremo with many miles travelled around the world and a long list of recordings including their latest cowritten and co-produced collaboration (“I Rest My Case” and “Cart’s Meow”on Ace Records). Honed his flair sharing stages and recording with top crop of the music world, Joe Louis Walker, Billy Branch, Mick Jagger, Earl Green, Larry Garner, Pee Wee Ellis, Zach Prather, Big Joe Louis and Big Joe Turner to name but a few. Artie is a bit of a “wonder”, a recipient of a scholarship at Trinity College of Music in his mid-twenties he’s already established a stronghold on a local jazz and blues scene. Equally at home on stage and in the recording studio (Moses Boyd Exodus, Jordan Rakei, Mark Kavuma, Georgia Van Etten and Tomorrows Warriors), performing with various line ups across UK and Europe.

3rd Emilia Martensson

Emilia first came to the attention of the jazz scene with her guest appearance on the Kairos Quartet’s debut album and her spellbinding vocals have been causing a stir ever since. Combining the influence of folk songs from her native Sweden with some of the greatest songs of the last century Emilia has successfully managed to forge a distinctive and unique niche for her vocal talents on the London jazz scene.

24th Dunajska Kapelye

The band draws its influences from everywhere the Danube flows (hence the name, which translates as “the Danube Band”) and from wherever their fancy takes them – Romania, former Yugoslavia, deepest Russia, Ottoman Europe, the Jewish Shtetl, Django Reindhardt’s Belgium and Edith Piaf’s Paris. In particular, they are indebted to the Roma people (commonly called “Gypsies”) whose music is a testament to the range and depth of the human soul.

Led by Piotr Jordan‘s many-hued and ever-virtuosic violin playing, the band’s approach is truly authentic; there are no fancy arrangements, nor is there a sense of stylistic reverence that many other bands who play in this genre aspire towards
