MUSICIAN Born:

Jill Grant

Jill began singing very early in life - her parents told her she was singing melody lines before she could speak. At seven she discovered jazz when she heard Count Basie’s “One O'clock Jump”. “It jumped out and grabbed me,” she said. From that moment on, she was hooked. Jill listened to anything and everything all through her childhood and teens - from Jelly Roll Morton to Ornette Coleman, and while at art college she began singing in jazz clubs in Birmingham where she was a student. Since then she has formed her own trio and quartet. Her regular musicians include Alan Berry and Richard Madgwick (piano), Ernie Cranenburgh (guitar), Dave Quincy (saxophones) and Mick Durell (bass)
