Mercedes Nicole

Soft-spoken Mercedes Nicole has an intimate and alluring stage presence that reaches out beyond the limits of time and space. Her voice is haunting and arresting, wrapping itself like a comforter around the human experience, encouraging uplift, seeking not only triumph but healing. She is that exquisite mix of a Mezzo-Soprano & Contralto blend that permeates and interrupts one's thoughts. Often with uncanny control...she lingers. Her own compositions acknowledge life's obscure and melancholy moments that so easily turn into beauty, and life journeys of the many faces of love. Her music exudes strength in the midst of tenderness and often soars so freely that the listener is caught up on wings of mystery and intrigue

Musician

Susie Smooth Duo Patman

I am the singer in Smooth Duo. I have a deep & rich contralto voice. Smooth and relaxing style. I like to sing softly and emotively. I am passionate about bringing out the feeling the lyrics evoke. My Duo partner Andy plays bongos, congas, blues harmonica plus some sax and keyboards. We specialise in cool background music with a hint of relaxing jazz and blues. We play a selection of music from the Great American Songbook and the cocktail jazz club era plus some 80's classics in the cocktail lounge jazz style, designed to appeal to a wide variety of tastes. We are based in Nottinghamshire, close to the borders of Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. SMOOTH DUO have opened for many 'name' acts, including The Osmond Brothers, Ken Dodd, Russell Watson, Billy Ocean, Lulu, the National Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and Lance Ellington. We played live at the Granada TV studios for the cast and crew of Coronation Street after the iconic live 50th Anniversary episode and have performed many times for the cast and crew of ITV's Emmerdale.

Musician

Linda Ellen Brown-Trinckes

John and Linda Trinckes met just over a year after both of them lost loved ones who passed on. After raising children, working to pay the bills and taking care of others who were seriously ill, they had both put their talents and dreams on hold. John taught music for 38 years, but had always wanted to write original music. Linda wrote poetry and sang, but never pursued songwriting, or sang much in public. Immediately after they met, they began singing together. Now, they have over 100 original songs, many albums or EPs, and a musical. They primarily write smooth jazz and easy listening songs, but have written in several genres, some cross genres and fit in 2 or 3, but are totally unique

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
