Sara Dowling Quintet

Making a very quick return to the club after JazzVoices we have the same band but with the very special addition of Vasilis Xenopoulos on Saxophone. Vasilis was last here with Nigel Price and made a huge impression, and his reputation around the London Jazz clubs he inhabits is immense. Sara Dowling’s reputation is growing so fast it is truly unbelievable, but having visited the club 3 times in the last 2 years we understand why. What a truly astonishing singer. As she told us last time she developed an early love of jazz via her father’s record collection, which included albums by such jazz greats as pianists Errol Garner, Art Tatum, Fats Waller, George Shearing, Bud Powell and Wynton Kelly plus saxophonists Lester Young and Ben Webster. And it shows; great poise, impeccable delivery and the best of song choices.
