Currently recording the music, FRIDA. will be releasing their debut album this Summer and looks forward to performances this summer, including the Cheltenham Jazz Fringe Festival.

Jazz Breakfast review

Kansas Smitty's

Kansas Smitty's
Remember Kansas Smitty’s and the two fabulous gigs they played at the Silvershine Jazz Club. We hope to get them back as soon as we can, but in the meantime we have a single they cut recently on sale for £5. It’s two fabulous tracks of stunningly crazy Jazz, so if you’re like me and you like your vinyl then you’ll love this!
