Peter Shepherd Trio / Duo

jazz piano trio
The trio has played as the house trio at the Alimentum jazz club in Cambridge, and welcomes bookings for public or private appearances. This is piano-led jazz in the style of the great Bill Evans trios.
We also play as a duo, just piano and double bass.
We love to use a real piano when one's available, but if not, we use our own electric piano.
Here are a some mp3 samples you can listen to, of the piano and bass duo.

Andy Bowie Duo / Trio / Quartet

jazz quartet
This sax-led quartet has established itself as a fixture on the Cambridge jazz scene; over the last few years playing every week at the Elm Tree, the Cricketers, the Clarendon and the Tram Depot, and has been featured on Radio Cambridgeshire. A live CD was released in 2007 (now sold out!). The band is also available as a trio or duo for smaller or quieter events.
We have a demo CD available of the quartet (here's a sample track) and of the sax / piano duo (sample track), and you can also have a look at this video of the trio playing at a wedding.
