Details

Kate’s classical background had to surface eventually and recently she has been developing compositions for her jazz trio with a string quartet.

The result has been very well received both on CD and at live gigs.

In the case of this band the pre-eminent Guastalla string quartet have been collaborating. Marie Shreer has recently landed a plum job with the Royal Northern Sinfonia.

The repertoire for this new project includes material by Bill Evans, Cole Porter and A.C. Jobim as well as originals by Williams.

The style of writing and arranging exploits the varied sound pallette of both string quartet and jazz trio, creating contrasts between the improvised and the notated, and between sustained textures and strong grooves.

Georgia brings her lovely voice to the mix such that the sounds and textures vary almost by number.
