Pimp My Jazz! What are we like?

PIMP MY JAZZ is a London-based UK BAND playing easy listening music with a jazz & Latin influence - hot JAZZ, cool SWING, smooth LATIN and smoochy BALLADS.

We combine Great American Songbook standards from the 40s and 50 with more recent covers, 

plus ORIGINAL songs from our album.

We now alternate between two beautiful and sophisticated singers.

LONETTE CHARLES, the vocalist on our album, has a great mellow sound

which has been compared at different times to

Sade, Cleo Laine, Diana Krall, Claire Martin and Karen Carpenter.

Lonette models herself on Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald.

Our second singer is the lively LEA LYLE, who performs with different combos and bands and has

a wide and varied repertoire.

THE ORIGINAL MUSIC

Song moods range from upbeat and swing reminiscent of Sinatra and Buble to cool, romantic or lounge-style ballads. The original songs on the album were written by the songwriting team Sparks & Shelley - guitarist Gavin K Sparks composed the music, assisted by lyricist Kay Shelley - but the performance repertoire includes well-known jazz and Latin standards, plus a few R&B, rock and ska numbers.
