Barb Jungr is ”mesmerising” (New York Times), ”casually virtuosic” (Guardian), an ”alchemist among jazz singers” (Telegraph), possessing a voice which is “shockingly expressive, with an astonishing palette of colours” (Observer). Across her 40 year career she has been internationally acclaimed for combining immaculate vocal technique, impassioned performance, piercing insight and beautifully unexpected musical arrangements to reinterpret European and American popular songs in a manner which The New York Times described as ”revelatory”. She has released over 20 recordings many of which have become regarded as classics. American jazz writer Will Freidwald devoted a chapter to her Dylan collection Every Grain of Sand in his book The Great Jazz and Pop Vocal Albums.
Jamie Safir is a 27 year-old pianist, composer and arranger effortlessly working across jazz, pop and musical theatre in the UK, working regularly with Will Young, and The Brand New Heavies, Olly Murs, Rebecca Ferguson & Steps and up and coming jazz star Judy Jackson.
