ISQ are a critically-acclaimed post-jazz/art pop quartet from London featuring Irene Serra (vocals - Wynton Marsalis, Norma Winstone, US3), Richard Sadler (double bass - founding member of the Neil Cowley Trio), Naadia Sheriff (piano - Yazz Ahmed, Hermeto Pascoal) and Chris Nickolls (drums - Andy Sheppard, Jean Touissant). Described as "EST with vocals", this crossover jazz outfit embrace “the song” as an improvisational framework to move into different – sometimes unexpected - sonic directions and moods. ISQ released their much-anticipated third album, “Requiem For The Faithful” in September 2019 and are currently touring around the UK. It is in a live setting that these musicians really show their jazz roots, expanding the framework of the songs and relishing in the musical spontaneity and interplay. Hear them when you get the chance.
