Afternoon in Paris - Porthcawl Jazz Festival 2017
With their unusual line up of two guitars and double bass, fronted by the multi-talented Susanna Warren on clarinet, bass clarinet and vocals, this extremely popular band has been bringing audiences to their feet for long enough to suggest that there’s more than a little quality here.
Afternoon in Paris is a feel-good outfit.
Gypsy Swing Jazz, Latin, Hot Club, their own diverse musical backgrounds, examples set by such great artists as Django Reinhardt and Benny Goodman and a myriad of other influences flavour this delicious musical mix.
Virtuosic guitar licks, eloquent clarinet, bouncing bass lines and vocals in several languages all combine to create the nique sound of Afternoon in Paris and are all delivered with a heartfelt and irresistible joie de vivre.
The Band members in addition to Susanna are Jeremy Young (lead guitar), Andrew King (rhythm guitar and vocals) and Andy “Wal” Coughlin (double bass and vocals).
