Jazzhearts

Dynamic Australian saxophonist/flautist Louise Eliott leads this contemporary London jazz ensemble in an “African-inspired jazz explosion”. Since her arrival in London from Sydney she has worked with a distinguished selection of African and South American musicians, including the Grand Union Orchestra, Mervyn Africa and the late Clifford Jarvis and his Prophets of Jazz. She regularly performs with British jazz guitarist Deirdre Cartwright and has featured on recordings by Annie Whitehead the Guest Stars, Jah Wobble & Deidre Cartwright. Her music reflects the diversity of these influences and has been referred to in the Guardian as “her profoundly diverse smorgasbord of funk, blues and rock”. The Jazzhearts current line-up also features outstanding South African pianist Mervyn Africa, the fiery trumpet of fellow South African, Claude Deppa, Chris Thorn (guitar), Mark Bassey (trombone) and the driving rhythm section of Richard Ajileye (congas/percussion), Steve Lamb (bass) and Greg Leppard (drums).
