Jazz Dynamos bandleaders Mark Adelman and Anders Janes met while working with UK swing favorite, Ray Gelato – first in the legendary Chevalier Brothers, then in Ray’s current band, the Giants.
Between tours, which took in major jazz festivals such as Montreux and Nice and performances at the world famous Carnegie Hall in New York, Mark, Ray and Anders set up Jazz Dynamos as a side project. However, as Ray became busier, he had to leave in order to fully concentrate on his own band, since when over the years some of the premium vocalists from the UK and further afield have worked with the band and Jazz Dynamos are now delighted to present one of the very finest, Lucy Randell.
Following her experience of working with Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz, plus some of the UK’s leading drum and bass artists, Lucy brought with her an ability to perform any type of music, facilitating Jazz Dynamos desire to spread their musical wings and in so doing, to create an eclectic and distinctive repertoire.
With Lucy fronting the Jazz Dynamos for the last 7 years, and with long term French drummer Dom Metz (Charles Aznavour, Glen Miller Memorial Orchestra) completing the team, the band have remained in high demand all over the world, performing at clubs, festivals and private events for, amongst others, British and Hollywood Royalty and in such disparate countries as Cambodia and Azerbaijan!
The band’s first CD ‘Hold Your Breath…Make A Wish…Count To Three’ includes contemporary re-workings of several 1980s pop hits – from Madonna to Dolly Parton – classic Peggy Lee, plus songs from Sweden to Brazil!
Jazz Dynamos are:
Lucy Randell – Vocals and Percussion
Mark Adelman – Keyboard
Anders Janes – Double Bass
Dominique Metz – Drums and Backing Vocals
Stewart Curtis – Saxes, Flute and Piccolo
