This is cool, sophisticated jazz and soul, sometimes more appropriate for intimate functions, garden parties by the pool, dinner, cocktail, or restaurantsé─Â or to the outdoor or indoor welcoming of guests at large events.
Backed by some of London's finest jazz musicians, songstress Val Kelly's deeply warm and sultry vocals ~ reminiscent of the likes of Nina Simone and Julie London ~ have continued to captivate audiences both home and abroad since 1995. Performing a melange of cool sophisticated jazz standards, bossa-nova, Latin jazz as well soulful 'easy-listening' music, The Val Kelly Jazz & Soul Quartet/Quintet has been the highlight of many exclusive private/corporate functions, 5 Star hotels, clubs and festivals. Their repertoire can aslo include some Pop, funk and R&B music for the appropriate venue or audience.
Appearances include the Nice-Cimiez Jazz Festival, the Soho Jazz Festival, Le Meridien Waldorf (Jazz brunch), Jazz FM summer jazz Festival (2003-2004) and 8 weeks as the support act to Dame Cleo Lane & Sir Johnny Dankworth and Rita Coolidge at the Green Room, Caf?ę Royal, London, Penny West Charitable Trust, Capgemini, Ernst & Young, Alan & Avery Solicitors, The Cosmetic, Toiletry & Perfumery Association Ltd, Mezzo, The Princeé─˘s Trusté─Â the list is very long.
