The JONNY HEPBIR QUINTET had a fantastic time playing to a packed house at Sawbridgeworth Jazz Club recently. It's been a couple of years since we were here last and this one was originally booked in for last year but due to the pandemic, the date was postponed till 2021.
It was great to play for such an enthusiastic audience, eager for live music. Our snappy arrangements of Gypsy Jazz, Jazz standards, Latin groovers and a few surprise numbers won the crowd over from the word go.
Based around the classic core of the Jonny Hepbir Trio, two guitars and double bass, this version of the Quintet had our vocalist Sara and our old friend Petro Dushi on accordion to lift the dynamics to another level!
We kept things fresh for the audience by playing a couple numbers with different combinations of the band at the beginning of the second set.
The band kept the pace up for the main part of the second half with some of our well known versions of tunes like Caravan, Meglio Stasera and Take The 'A' Train. You can hear these and many more on my YouTube channel - Jonny Hepbir Trio
Here's a great shot of the Quintet in full swing.
