The listening pleasure of a recital combined with the relaxed, inspiring ambiance of the jazz club is unforgettable. A time to make beautiful memories as long-lasting as jazz music itself.
Nicknamed ‘Lady Jazz’, singer Sarah Fenwick has recorded four CDs; Jazz Attack, Love Life, Jazz Way and Jazz Origins. She is recognised as one of the leading improvisational jazz singers on the island as well as being one of the island’s original voices of the genre. Her career stretches back to 1992 when she started to sing professionally in Nicosia. Since then she has worked with most of the top musicians in Cyprus and many from abroad such as Scottish guitarist Jim Mullen and Welsh pianist Gareth Williams. In 2012 she formed one of the greatest duets in Cyprus jazz history with brilliant guitarist Marinos Neofytou. Passion, improvisation and an ability to join ensembles from duets to sextets and big bands characterise her approach to jazz performance.
