About The Midnight Swingsters

Jazz trio
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million
A swinging, compact Jazz instrumental and vocal trio based on The Nat King Cole Trio.

The Midnight Swingsters are named after Nat King Cole's first band The King Cole Swingsters, formed in 1937. Nat's velvet vocals and elegant, swinging piano playing helped jazz to gain a wider popularity, and defined a new genre - the small jazz trio. And so it is with the Midnight Swingsters, a trio of piano, double bass, guitar and vocals presenting a miscellany of the songs and tunes that swung the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The trio can be augmented with percussion (bongo player Jack Constanza played with Nat's trio from 1949), or any combination of front-line instruments, such as saxophone, clarinet, trumpet or violin. But at the core is this versatile and swinging trio with a wide repertoire of melodic and accessible music.
