Emma has joined forces with maverick pianist John Law and Italian drummer Paolo Adamo to bring you some truly fresh and imaginative renditions of Jazz Standards. The band are available for bookings in London and across the Southwest. They perform as a duo, trio or full band with horns.
Their repertoire includes a diverse mix of songs from the sultry, smokey blues of Sarah Vaughn's 'Black Coffee' to the high speed swing of Ellington's 'Take the A Train'.
From the Soulful, Gospel tones of 'God Bless The Child' to their tango version of 'Comes Love' and beautiful rendition of 'Nature Boy'. Emma's captivating vocals are silky smooth and her Ellaesque style lifts age old standards into a whole new dimension demonstrating a rare ease and flair for improvisation.
John started out playing classical piano at he age of four and went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music before turning to Jazz in 1986. John has been described as:
