Born and raised in the Australian Outback, and now living in Philedelphia, Gemma Sherry is a jazz saxophonist-turned vocalist.
In this episode we learn more about her start in music, right through to her new album, crowd-funded in the midst of a global pandemic.
Joe Webb is one of the UK's most in-demand young pianists. As well as fronting his own trio, he has also been head-hunted by the likes of Adrian Cox and Kansas Smitty's.
In this episode we find out more about a boy from Wales came to be a big part of the London jazz scene, including his early influences and just how close he came to permanently plying his trade in Spain.
Trumpet player, Composer and Bandleader, Mark Kavuma, is part of the London-based, new generation of Jazz artists lighting up the jazz scene.

In this episode we learn more about Boston-born pianist/singer/songwriter Jen Kearney. With a high-energy sound and a powerful, soulful voice, Jen has, quite rightly, established herself as a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the Atlantic.
From his debut pop release, "I Wonder Why", back in 1991, to his 2020 album, "Gentleman", Curtis Stigers has become one of the most recognisable faces on the International jazz circuit.
