“Totally top stuff, Lizzie and James are two of the best musicians I have ever heard and I’ve been around long enough to know!” Jeff Beck
“Lizzie Ball-total dazzling repolishing of latin music and other jazz standards” The Guardian
Two musicians who are totally unique and regarded in the highest esteem by their contemporaries and their collaborators/employers, bring you a totally bespoke show that is tailored to any musical genre you desire. This is the perfect act for achieving truly special and memorable moments within your private event, particularly with intimate venues/crowds.
Lizzie and James have performed, recorded and toured with some of the worlds leading artists, including Nigel Kennedy (for whom Lizzie is concertmaster and musical director), Sir Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Simply Red, Paul Weller, Kanye West, Joss Stone, Sir Tom Jones, to name but a few. James is Artistic Director and esteemed house pianist at the famous Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in Soho, London.
Their show can take you on a journey from the old jazz of the glorious 1920s right through to modern day samba, and their vast knowledge of the classical, jazz, latin, folk and pop genres means that there is no package deal here-they will specially create the show that you want, even composing arrangements of specific pieces of music that you want to include. Other options are a bespoke piece of music written as a surprise for a birthday/wedding present that can be about the person in question/for the person in question, aswell as a rip-roaring entertaining element called “Challenge the Band” in which members of the audience are asked to call out ANY piece of music in ANY style and it will be achieved. Hard to believe but truly impressive!
“ There is no question that James Pearson upholds the traditions of true jazz, one of those multifaceted players capable of invoking everyone from Oscar Peterson to George Gershwin and Dudley Moore… he steals the show every time” The Sunday Times
“Lizzie and James are utterly unique, supremely talented, and quite frankly breathtaking music making” Phil Ramone (legendary record producer for Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Joel and George Michael)
