About Pocket Cabaret

Jazz duo
London
We're a compact but expandable ensemble, performing lovely accessible jazz - both background or performance, Hoagy to Hot Club

Norwegian by ancestry but British by nationality Nils started his career performing in the West End of London in the '70s and has been a professional musician ever since. He has earned the reputation for being one of the top, most versatile guitarists in the UK, recording and touring widely with such people as Bryan Ferry, Nigel Kennedy, Ralph McTell and Clare Teal. He has a huge repertoire of material covering jazz standards from the '20s to the '60s, and including laid-back bossa novas, the swing style exemplified by the Nat Cole Trio and The Great American Songbook - Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George Gershwin, with a smattering of gypsy jazz thrown into the mix. Originally classically trained as a singer, Kate started life working in theatre shows such as O! What a Lovely War. Over the years she has sung and danced in 1930's cabaret, WWII performances in London shows and in harmony ensembles. Jazz has become her great passion and in recent years she has recorded and toured with her quartet which comprises some of the UKs top jazz musicians.
