Nicknamed ‘Lady Jazz’, Sarah Fenwick is one of the island’s original jazz and blues voices as well as being the founder of Sarah’s Jazz Club in Nicosia. A lifelong supporter of the arts of jazz and blues, Sarah has recorded four CDs, the last two, named ‘Jazz Way’ and ‘Jazz Origins’, are duet works with brilliant guitarist Marinos Neofytou.

On Friday May 26th, the duet are joined by soulful saxophonist Iacovos Parpas. The trio make sublime music together, strongly influenced by the blues. Evocative arrangements by Marinos Neofytou add an entirely new impression of jazz standards. The trio improvise on well-known tunes, creating interpretations that are fresh and enhance the beauty within each composition.


The trio perform songs written by Sarah and Marinos for the ‘Jazz Origins’ CD, each song telling a different story. Most recently, the music video for ‘Tango Blues’ was released, telling the story of a woman dancing the tango alone, waiting for a partner who never shows up. On May 26th, enjoy this and other songs, taking you on a odyssey to the origins of jazz music.

Book your table via Sarah’s Jazz Club Hotline 95147711 for the Ioannou-Vafeas Quartet’s unmissable show on May 27th. This is the next and final show in the band’s May residency at the jazz club. The first three shows were a huge success, full houses and enthusiastic audiences enjoyed the quartet’s incredible talent.

Saxophonist Charis Ioannou, drummer Ioannis Vafeas, pianist Dimitris Miaris and bassist Greg Makamian form the Ioannou-Vafeas Quartet. The group have just released their new CD Bridge of Locks and perform the superb compositions of US saxophonist Chris Byars, bringing New York to Nicosia. Virtuoso performances of crisp and fluid uptempo tunes get the adrenaline flowing. Then the band slows the tempo with a sensitively played ballad full of feeling.

Inspired notes flow from Ioannou’s saxophone like a river of musical gold. Powering the beat is jazz drummer Ioannis Vafeas. Silvery, fluid piano notes played by Dimitris Miaris weave in and around the carpet of smooth grooves laid down by the rock-steady double bass by Greg Makamian.

To reserve a table or at the bar call/SMS 95147711. The reservations can be made online via the jazz club’s booking form
