Nicola Farnon – Double Bass & Vocals
Piero Tucci – Keys & Saxophone
Phil Johnson – Drums


Nicola manages to combine her exceptional talents of singing and playing bass with a delightfully original and very inclusively warm and witty performance.

 Piero Tucci – ‘a jazzer’s dream, as unpretentiously skillful on keys as he is on sax.” Sandman magazine;  a  wonderfully gifted and entertaining player who certainly knows how to swing.

 Phil Johnson drives the whole performance with an intense and propulsive drumming feel that allows the overall song to shine through.  

The trio are close-knit, swinging outfit that makes optimum use of their combined instrumental skills with integrity and refreshing enthusiasm. Their performance includes an eclectic mix of classy arrangements – whether it be swing, latin or heart rending ballads – coupled with a few of Nicola’s own very catchy originals. Whatever the setting, this multi-talented trio aim to enjoy themselves fully, to entertain joyfully – and to swing yer socks off!,


“Ms Farnon is everything a performer should be; accomplished, communicative and effervescent, her expressive voice a delight. [She] writes her own material and gives it 100%, winning new fans wherever she goes.” – Durham Jazz

“A remarkable performer on stage, a fine singer and an outstandingly swinging and propulsive bass player with an outgoing personality to match…I declare that she is a class act who should be on every jazz festival in the land….A sure fire hit!” – Humphrey Lyttleton
