13th – 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.

20th – Eleonora Clasp

Born in Milan, Italy, Eleonora’s interest in music began in her early teenage years, when she started studying drums and percussions. While touring and recording behind the drum kit in various rock, pop and jazz bands, she developed an interest in singing, as she supported her groups on backing vocals. Having moved to the UK in search of new inspiration, she started studying jazz singing, while performing on the London scene and writing her own material. Her first album as a singer-songwriter, titled Stars, was released in late 2015, gaining supportive reviews and airplay across many UK outlets. Her set features her highly regarded originals, and percussion-focused arrangements of an eclectic mix of her favorite songs by artists as diverse as Sting, Dvořák and Cyndi Lauper.

27th – Rebecca Tommasi

Her stage presence is as warm and compelling as her voice, and with an ever growing and more daring repertoire, her live performances are a must.Influences include Anita O’day, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Ernestine Anderson, Amy Winehouse, Chet Baker and Bill Evans to name just a few.

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 VogelHeidi 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.
