Dominic Alldis - Piano
Dominic Alldis has built a unique musical career over 30 years, spanning the rich and varied musical worlds of classical music, jazz piano and cabaret singing. Equally at home with a conductor’s baton in hand, performing with his jazz trio or entertaining an audience with songs at the piano, Dominic’s fluency in many different musical languages and flair for bringing them together in a distinctive way puts him in a category all of his own.
Andrew Cleyndert - Double bass
Andrew Cleyndert has toured with bands led by many of the major figures of British and American jazz, including Bobby Wellins, Don Weller, Red Rodney, Bud Shank, Gene Harris and Annie Ross. In the early 90s he become a member of the Ronnie Scott Quartet and until his recent death was bassist in the groups of British jazz legend Stan Tracey. Andrew and Dominic have been performing together in numerous ensembles since 1985.
Andrew Cleyndert has been nominated for the 2017 British Jazz Awards in the Double Bass category. Congratulations on being awarded 4th Place this year.

Martin France has played with many of the world's finest jazz musicians in over forty countries worldwide. A turning point in his early career was his role within the Eighties big band Loose Tubes, where he began a longstanding partnership with many of its members, in particular jazz composer and pianist Django Bates.
