Act Profile

American Songbook Jazz

Sara is the leader of the band, and her fine jazz vocals have been heard around the world. Effortlessly intoning the great jazz vocalists of the 20th century, Sara has won acclaim from some of the industry greats. Saxophonist Robin has been playing professionally for over 30 years, including work as a session musician, a band leader and a sideman to many well-known acts. He is steeped in the jazz tradition, and shows off a mellow tone on all his reeds. Jason on guitar is a rising star of the UK scene, and continues to notch up performances with some of the country's finest. Dan on double bass was recently nominated in the parliamentary jazz awards for best UK double bassist. He's played at Ronnies, Smalls in NYC, The New York Athletic club, and many more high profile jazz joints. He appears regularly at The Ivy's acclaimed jazz nights. The act in its current form has been together since 2004
