Joanna Rimmer

“Joanna Rimmer sings pure jazz without compromising, with technical excellence and intonation; all things which have to be learnt. She has at her interpretative strength absolute respect of the actual melody – Jazz through and through - and has a capacity to rejuvenate the great standards from the past, above all, of the Great American Songbook. But there’s more to it than that: I would say a complete respect towards the public which translates to knowing how to bring to life a stage and of knowing how to make, whoever is listening, feel at ease through witty and intelligent presentations of the tunes. The public of Offagna Jazz Festival in Italy, were left utterly bewitched by her and quite rightly dedicated to her a standing ovation. Here, in the midst of all this sloven vulgarity of nowadays; Joanna Rimmer has under her belt a professionalism that is long lost, and what stands out is an intelligence, an elegance, and grace; of expressive in...

Their extensive live work has included jazz concerts, workshops and tours. They have released four albums, most recently Rejoicing Blues (2013) which is currently receiving a very warm reception from DJs, reviewers and the general public alike.

Before that came Psalms (2006) and The River (2002). Their music reflects the breadth of the individual players' experience and captures a vibrant chemistry between the musicians. Through their strongly melodic and inventive compositions and arrangements, they produce music that is passionate, lyrical and always engaging.

Not too much space was taken up (appreciate you have to do what you need to) so there was enough dancing room, set up seemed quick, the first dance song was spot on, the mix of music was brilliant… The list goes on! Everyone who has commented on the wedding have all said how good you guys were/what are you called/where did we find you et


Our drinks event and the whole evening was helped immensely with the quartet playing so beautifully.
