CHAMBER JAZZ
"Diligent rehearsal, accurate transcriptions, sympathetic musicianship and hey presto, on this evidence, success is yours.  Pite’s men kept the various stylistic signatures fresh, this confirming yet again trumpeter Enrico Tomasso’s versatility whilst Alan Barnes was equally hot alongside on clarinet and alto."
Peter Vacher - Jazz UK

100 YEARS OF JAZZ

The hugely entertaining 100 Years of Jazz...  from ragtime to modal jazz by way of swing all in 99 minutes!  Impossible?  Not with these guys. Standing ovation duly earned.
Jazz Journal

Listening to this remarkably versatile small band of musicians tackle the contemporary jazz of Abdullah Ibrahim with the same fervour and intensity as they produced for Miles Davis's "Kind of Blue" or Sidney Bechet's 1920s romping New Orleans jazz was a tremendous experience. Every era is evoked with complete conviction, during the musical equivalent of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, in which none of the major musical soliloquies gets left out.
Alyn Shipton (Jazz Critic for The Times)

 

LONDON OMNIBUS
London Omnibus has developed a loyal following here and we would welcome their return again and again!
The music is so enjoyable and all the musicians have such interesting knowledge of the music and the composers. Such unique entertainment is invaluable to our programming.

KEITH NICHOLS PRESENTS
We were all thrilled to bits with the Blue Devils' performance back in September - every musician the absolute tops!
The Ripon Arts Festival

AFTER YOU'VE GONE
The best (Drum Boogie, Let Me Off Uptown) featured tall, elegant singer Joan Viskant and diminutive, ebullient trumpeter Rico Tomasso, reprising the partnership of Anita O’Day and Roy Eldridge, visually and musically. Sparkling nostalgia.
