Jazz Moves is available in the following standard line-ups:

The Jazz Moves Trio (piano, bass, drums) is perfect, to provide music at a background level, which is clearly audible, yet does not interfere with the lively conversations taking place, between family ,friends and colleagues.

With the addition of the saxophone to the rhythm section, the Jazz Moves Quartet has the ability to perform a fully blown jazz gig to any size of audience. You may prefer to have female vocals instead of saxophone for a more sophisticated background performance.

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
All blues
All of me
All the things you are
Angel eyes
Autumn leaves
Beautiful love
Black Orpheus
Blue bossa
Body and soul
Bye bye blackbird
Can’t get started
Cheek to cheek
Come fly with me
Don’t get around much anymore
Don’t worry about me
Drop me off in Harlem
Everything happens to me
Embraceable you
Exactly like you
Fly me to the moon
Foggy day
Gee baby ain’t I good to you
Georgia on my mind
Girl from impanima
Have you met Miss Jones
I got rhythm
I love you
I remember you
In a sentimental mood
It had to be you
I've never been in love before
Let there be love
Let’s fall in love
Like someone in love
Lover Man
Lullaby of Birdland
My funny valentine
Night and day
On green dolphin street
One note samba
Our love is here to stay
So what
Softly as a morning sunrise
Someday my prince will come
Song for my farther
Stella by starlight
St. Thomas
Stormy Monday
Takin' a chance on love
Take the A train
Take 5
What is this thing called love
What’s new
You made me love you
You make me feel so young


An excellent evenings entertainment, making the night really memorable.

We would just like to say thank you very much for performing at our wedding, the band was very profesional from arrival to departure, the music was first class and all the guests fully enjoyed themselves. We would also like to say a special thank you to the band for doing a special request for myself and Lorraine in which you played a song for just the 2 of us before the guests were called in.
