Retrojaz is a collaboration of two UK artistes who share a love of The Great American Songbook. Ray Barrett, guitar, whose early influences of Mississippi John Hurt, Chet Atkins, and Barney Kessel directed his musical evolvement and are still present today. Andrea, vocalist, hails from the famous English seaside resort, Blackpool where she first started singing with Jazz and swing bands. Andrea’s influences are Lena Horne, Billy Holiday, Peggy Lee, Julie London to name but a few. The electric upright bass of Mark English enhances Retrojaz. Mark is an exiting and dynamic bass player, creating that all important swing within the Retrojaz sound. Songs from the Great American Songbook as covered by Rod Stewart, Michael Buble, Diana Krall, Nora Jones... not to mention Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Ella Fitzgerald and all the wonderful composers like Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, and Irvin Berlin. Loved by young and old.
