…one of the most uplifting rides you could take inside a jazz club…

Members of the Jazzelation have worked with leading UK musicians, such as Jonathan Gee, Jamie Cullum, and Jim Mullen as well as international artists such as Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, Maddy Prior and Burt Bacharach. They have performed at music venues and festivals around the world.

Jazzelation launched their debut CD at the Oxford Jazz Festival 2009. They have since played at the Cheltenham Greenbelt Festival, the Bicester Jazz Festival and at major jazz clubs around the UK.

The band’s debut album, Spring is Such a Beautiful Thing, combines the spirit of soul with the freedom of jazz improvisation. The album’s melodic compositions have a timeless quality: familiar elements of modern jazz, gospel and r&b come together to create a distinctive, contemporary sound. Acclaimed singer Alison Bentley has a richly soulful voice and the band’s musicianship is of the highest order.

“Alison Bentley goes up through the gears and finds real energy…impeccable…choc-full of irrepressible hope and optimism”
LONDONJAZZ

“Music that skilfully blends jazz with soulful elements…
Alison Bentley presents songs with feeling and understanding…impressive guitar & organ solos…This is a promising debut album and the group should go from strength to strength…”
CRESCENDO & JAZZ MUSIC MAGAZINE

“…[Alison Bentley is] an adaptable and original artist of subtlety.”
THE GUARDIAN

“…inspired by a love of 1960s soul and gospel music, high-lighting Alison Bentley’s clear and attractive voice and interspersed with tasty trumpet and tenor solos…”
