Graham Watkins Quartet with Clare Hingott - Porthcawl Jazz Festival 2017
Featuring CLARE HINGOTT (vocals) THINK shades of Shearing punctuated with Peterson, a little laid back Loussier with a dash of Nat Cole all brought up to date and you have the Graham Watkins Quartet.
Graham Watkins, leader and keyboards; Jack Williams, bass guitar and George Wilson, drums. Add the vocal talent of chanteuse extraordinaire Clare Hingott and you have the Graham Watkins Quartet performing a wide range of music all arranged by Graham himself.
Their present library consists of classic jazz standards, the best of the Great American Songbook and items from the repertoire of contemporary female singers such as Stacey Kent, all interpreted in the Band’s own unique way.
The Graham Watkins Quartet always presents the same level of slick, polished and professional performance whether in a bijou arts venue or sharing a major stage with the likes of Dame Cleo Laine. They have become firm favourites of Porthcawl Jazz Festival audiences and we are delighted to have them back.
