Not Now Charlie [Jazz]
With a love for jazz, rock, pop, neo soul and R&B it was inevitable that Not Now Charlie’s music would reflect many of these elements. Melody and groove are at the heart of their playing and they aim to have even the non-jazz lover hooked. Taking their influence from the likes of Christian Scott, Manu Katche, Chris Potter, Roller Trio and Joshua Redman yet still managing to create their own individual sound. Their debut was made at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2014 to an enthusiastic audience and had a great reception when they supported The Slowlight Quartet in Jan 2015. They are planning to record a live EP for release in early 2016 on Jazz Sound Records.
