Wilma Baan

When you hear So Nice, the debut release from vocalist Wilma Baan, you may wonder why you haven't heard her before. Wilma's rich, mellow tone, impeccable timing and elegant delivery pay homage to her musical influences (Julie London, Nancy Wilson, Dianne Reeves) on this accomplished recording of 12 treasures from the standard repertoire. The arrangements by Graham Harvey provide a sparklingly fresh take on these much-loved songs including a wonderfully sensitive version of the inexplicably under recorded 'Day by Day' and on a poignant rendition of 'Here's to Life', producer Claire Martin coaxes every nuance and shade from Wilma's charming vocal performance. Chris Traves' mellifluous trombone solo on 'Close Enough for Love' demonstrates the generous contributions made by Chris (he also co-produced the album with Claire Martin) Josh Morrison and Dave Chamberlain throughout the recording (Dave can be heard playing the guitar on tracks 1 & 8). For Wilma, So Nice represents the fulfilment of a long-held ambition; to record songs that have deeply moved and inspired her and that have sustained her love for the jazz repertoire through the years

Germana Stella La Sorsa

Italian London-based Jazz Singer and Storyteller Germana Stella La Sorsa started performing in Italy at an early age, working her way up through the Italian Jazz scene to ultimately perform at the side of one of the most influential European jazz musicians: Franco Cerri (Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday, Lee Konitz, Gerry Mulligan, Django Reinhardt and many more). After relocating to London in 2017, Germana's unique talent was quickly recognised leading to developing her own projects (including JiC_Jazz in Cinema_Project, alongside the english double bass player Joe Boyle) and performances at most of the main London jazz venues - such as the iconic Ronnie Scott's, Vortex Jazz Club, Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club, Oliver's Jazz Bar and Kansas Smitty's. ​The move to London inspired La Sorsa to compose new material and this creative impetus eventually led to the composition of much of the material on her debut album 'Vapour', released on the London based label 33 Jazz Records, and now available on all major platforms.

Sarah L King

Her assured grasp of many jazz standards comes from the early influence of her father, a jazz trumpeter, & this could also explain the beautifully soulful and heartfelt phrasing she conjures, to make songs very much her own. Sarah has released an accomplished EP of covers What’s New, as well as several original singles, and is currently writing her debut original album for release in 2022.
