Kat and Jazz

The Standards

Kat performs with Mike Kemp and the boys of Deja Vu at the Bedord Street in Leamington Spa.

Old favourites like 'Stormy Weather', 'Misty', 'I Got Rhythm' and 'Canadian Sunset' that make you smile with memories.

Songs my Father Taught Me

A shot from the studio.

The title of my album is 'Songs my Father Taught Me'. It was through him that I first heard the early jazz greats like Fats Waller and Hoagy Carmichael.

Mike Kemp, a fabulous English jazz pianist and musician is doing my arrangements for me. I am so grateful! 

Early Jazz

Kat with Mike Kemp and the boys from Deja Vu at The Queen's Head in Heather.

Jazz music of the early years, songs like 'Hard-Hearted Hannah', 'Sweet Georgia Brown', 'Ain't Misbehavin' and 'Honeysuckle Rose' move me unlike any others. As a Jazz singer, they are a ton of fun to perform.

A Few Tracks

Here's a sneak preview of one of the tracks off my album, Songs My Father Taught Me, being released on 10 May 2019.  My dad sang Sweet Georgia Brown to me when I was a very little girl. I'd just seen the Harlem Globe Trotters on TV for the first time and didn't believe the song had lyrics!
