jazz to go

Jazzy Shades are East Anglia’s latest musicians to hit the pop and jazz scene. Michael Salmon on piano and Tara Bennett on vocals provide the pop presentations whilst the jazz numbers are performed around a core quartet of Michael Salmon on piano, Andrew Wild on bass, Adam Morris on drums with guitarist Les Simons. Jazzy Shades are available for gigs or private functions.

The group is very flexible and can play in any format to suit the occasion from solo piano, piano and vocals, piano and bass, standard trio or quartet, or alternative formats including horns, cellos or violin, drawing from the quartet’s circle of professional musicians. Jazzy Shades are classically trained musicians and can play jazz, pop, latin or blues including original transcriptions of Brubeck, Oscar Peterson, Thelonious Monk and Jacques Loussier.

Most of the musicians are based in Colchester, Essex, but travel to many counties in England.
