Many will recognise Dominic from the colourful swing band, ‘The Numbers Racket’ that has amazed Brecon Jazz over many years, and he has also featured in the big band lineups at the Festival regularly. Dominic has been a highly acclaimed and notable jazz saxophonist on the British scene and touring for many years. Digby Fairweather said it was, “like having Zoot Simms on stage playing next to me.”
Dominic’s lyrical style is akin to some of the greats in jazz performance, such as Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan – but he has also toured with many in the Blues World. Ex Rolling Stone Mick Taylor called him, “the best rock ‘n’ roll sax player in Europe.”
Elaine Hoss is a much-loved jazz vocalist, has performed extensively in concerts and clubs across Wales, the UK and internationally. Highlights include the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, Disneyland Paris, the Millennium Centre, Cardiff, the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea. Elaina has been on tour to Spain, performing at the San Sebastian Jazz Festival, in a line-up including Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock.
John-paul Gard started playing Hammond organ at the age of 10 and since then has developed his own distinctive style – heavily influenced by Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Joey DeFrancesco. Recently John-paul joined the Jon Dalton Organ Trio based in Venice Beach USA and has released the album “Warm ghosts in a Cold World” . The highly respected guitarist James Chadwick joins the lineup providing a subtle and distinctive sound. Bristol-based jazz drummer and session musician Paolo Adamo and member of the contemporary jazz projects Tuktuk, John Law’s Re-Creations, Ibou Tall & Jazzmates provides expert backing.
