SUZANNE MOTT QUINTET

The vocals led SUZANNE MOTT QUINTET brings together five leading musicians, including one of the finest young trumpet players on the scene, JAMIE BROWNFIELD, and keyboardist

TOM KINCAID. 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.

 

The quintet's trumpet player, Jamie Brownfield, was performing jazz in public by the age of

twelve, guesting wherever he could at local jazz clubs. Still in his early twenties, as co-leader of

the acclaimed Brownfield-Byrne Quintet (BBQ) and 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, guesting with numerous bands including TJ Johnson's Bourbon Kick,

Beats 'n' Pieces Big B and The Merseysippi Jazz Band, Jamie was a winner at the 2012

British Jazz Awards in the 'Rising Star' category.

 

Sought after for his swinging piano style, Tom Kincaid has become the first choice of many

touring artists and bandleaders, performing recently with jazz saxophonists Art Themen and

Scott Hamilton, as well as his childhood hero, rock 'n' roll legend Shakin' Stevens. Tom has

also played on many occasions with Alan Barnes, Roy Williams, Karen Sharp, Bruce Adams,

Wendell Brunious and Lucien Barbarin to name but a few. He appears in prestigious venues

worldwide such as the 100 club, the Savoy, the Ritz, New York’s Lions Den, and various

international jazz and blues festivals.

 

Completing the line-up of the Suzanne Mott Quintet are two first rate musicians,

GRANT RUSSELL (bass) and JACK COTTERILL (drums).
