“A smooth classy outfit evoking the best of the iconic Blue Note Records sound”



“There is a bunch of talented guys in the south, who are revelling in their faithful reproduction of some of the more rare 50’s & 60’s recordings. They sound great, they play great, and damn it they look great too. Don’t miss any opportunity to see and indeed hear The Sound Of Blue Note” Nigel Price

“The Sound Of Blue Note takes its lead from the greatest jazz recordings on the iconic jazz label. Slick ensemble passages alternate with inspired solos to bring this exceptional material very much to life! This may be a celebration of a golden musical age but in a modern and very relevant context.” – Alan Barnes

“I’m always pleased to get a call to play with the Sound of Blue Note. The guys play with energy & commitment & the audiences always seem to love the music!'”Mark Nightingale
