"...the old world sultry class of Julie London, and the gritty attitude of Amy Winehouse with a dash of Dinah Washington, Dowling's voice has a timeless quality." Sally Evans Derby

A salute to the Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley album of 1962 featuring prodigiously gifted vocalist Sara Dowling and effervescent Italian alto saxophonist Tommaso Starace

Sara Dowling graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music as an accomplished cellist and composer, writing for film and TV. She later began singing displaying an impressive range (particularly resonant in the lower register), precise diction and a melodic ringing tone.

Tommaso Starace was born in Milano, moving to the UK in 1994 where he studied at Birmingham Conservatoire and later at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He has performed with some of the most respected jazz musicians including Billy Cobham, David Liebman, Kenny Wheeler, Stan Sulzmann, Jim Mullen etc. Tommaso has also written for film and television

The superb back line of Chris Ingham, Arnie Somogyi and George Double complete this excellent quintet.
