A new kid on the block, Gianni has a great sense of rhythm and timing and is also an accomplished composer with his own group. (The Gianni Quartet). Gianni is currently in his second year of the highly regarded Jazz degree course at Middlesex University.
This is a great opportunity to witness and marvel at Gianni's already prodigious yet youthful talent at close quarters, Fine inventive and percussive attack and worthy of comparison with his fellow jazz pianist Gwilym Simcock for invention - he is destined for a magnificent future in Jazz - Jazz Eddie

Chris GoodsellChris 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

There are many drummers but there is only one Lester Bennett.
Lester is a highly experienced player who as well as being a master of the jazz kit is percussionist with highly acclaimed early music group Mediva, appearing regularly on Radio 3, The English Music Festival circuit and the Purcell Room.”

Lester is a joy to watch and his drumming technique is impeccable, Fine unobtrusive drumming and well structured solos - a true professional - Jazz Eddie
