Dave Murrell Jazz ‘n’ Swing

Return to Previous Page

Dave Murrell Swing Jazz Band presents a closely-knit yet effortlessly loose ensemble of saxophone, piano, double-bass, guitar and drums.

“Cool, clean swing-jazz favourites performed with verve and commitment…”

Expect tightly-controlled structural arrangements, underpinned by that edgy, modern, city energy. You’re looking for jazz for a more intimate occasion? An instrumental duo comprising saxophone and guitar, or perhaps a piano trio may well fit the bill. As an alternative pairing, these guys can also combine the vocal delights of fine jazz singer and pianist Anne Odell with the versatile talent of Dave Murrell on guitar. The full quintet? Saxophone, piano, double-bass, guitar and drums comprise the line-up, with each individual instrument taking its turn to ‘step out in style’. Whatever line-up you eventually choose, you’re sure to be delighted by the sparkling fresh clarity of the Dave Murrell Swing Jazz Band.

Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Miles Davis were musical pioneers who ‘raised the bar’, taking the technical limitations and constraints of their respective instruments to new levels. Such icons provide the ‘roadmap’ that mainstream jazz follows. New York, the gridiron city of clear, straight boulevards with skyscrapers reaching up like vast stretching fingers, can be seen as the architectural inspiration for mainstream jazz.

All in all, it’s a tasty, sophisticated brew of Swing and Mainstream Jazz favourites, absolutely ideal to generate an intimate, relaxed but classy atmosphere at most types of celebration, public or private – Dave Murrell Swing Jazz Band is a veritable powerhouse of musical excellence!
