Suzanne Mott Quintet – North Wales Jazz Night

The vocals led Suzanne Mott Quintet brings together five leading musicians, including one of the finest young trumpet players on the scene, JAMIE BROWNFIELD. With swing, ballads and Latin sounds all featured, you can look forward to hearing a wide repertoire of jazz classics, including interpretations of some of the greatest songs of the 20th century from composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Duke Ellington.

SUZANNE MOTT is one of the new wave of jazz singers who firmly believes in the quality of her music. She started singing at an early age and gained much experience on the musical theatre and concert stage. Suzanne has played many leading roles, including that of Gertrude Lawrence, for which she was critically acclaimed at the Buxton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. Heavily influenced by greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan, she is also a keen fan of contemporary singers such as Diana Krall, Stacey Kent and Claire Martin.

Jamie Brownfield (trumpet), was performing jazz in public by the age of twelve, guesting wherever he could at local jazz clubs. Now in his twenties, as leader of his own band and co-leader of the & the

Brownfield-Byrne Hot 6, he has made a name for himself playing all styles of jazz from be-bop to New Orleans. A popular figure on the jazz circuit, Jamie was winner at the 2012 British Jazz Awards in the ‘Rising Star’ category and now has a new CD,

“Going Down To New Orleans”, which is garnering rave reviews and and airplay on Jamie Cullum’s Radio 2 show and Jazz FM.
