"Hot Jazz Vagabonds with Airlie Scott [vocals] made their debut appearance at the Walnut Jazz Club in Blisworth recently. Ably assisted by saxophonist Sue Greenway they delighted the audience with a varied and interesting programme of American Songbook standards and jazz gems. The highly effective rhythm section of 2 guitars and double bass along with the sublime contribution of Sue's languid saxophone lent itself perfectly to the dramatic and talented vocal style of Airlie Scott. The almost capacity audience loved it!" Tad Newton Walnut Jazz Club. January 2022.

The Hot Jazz Vagabonds played for our special Brooklands Relived event last summer and were a great hit with crowd. Swinging music from the 20s, 30s and 40s that added to the atmosphere and perfectly suited our event. A mix of swing, hot jazz, vintage numbers which set the scene for the re-enactment of historic Grand Prix action... We can't wait to have them back.
