Jazz Eddie - Tim has a nice melodic and authoritative approach to his jazz improvisations and is supported sympathetically by delicate piano runs from Gianni Boscarino, and superbly paced by this extremely talented rhythm section. He also plays very proficient guitar.
Boscarino - Piano
Chris Goodsell - Electric Bass
Unassuming he may be but Chris is the backbone to the quartet with his impeccable timing and inventive bass lines. Chris also plays classical double bass with a couple of North London orchestras. He is the ‘groove-merchant’.
Quiet confidence, strident and sympathetic bass lines - Jazz Eddie
Lester Bennett - Drums
Lester is a joy to watch and his
drumming technique is impeccable, Fine unobtrusive percussion and well structured solos -
a true professional - Jazz Eddie

LIVE JAZZ NEEDS YOUR HELP TO SURVIVE …………At any time of year things are difficult for Jazz, so even if you can’t make it yourself we really do appreciate it if you can encourage friends and colleagues to come along. If you would like to download a Poster to put out in your work place that would be a terrific help and of course you can always send people to this extensive web site. Remember that we work only for the Jazz Musicians to give them a platform for their talents. We are a not for profit organisation but as mere enthusiasts we cannot accumulate losses either.
