Mellow, sultry delivery of 9 classic jazz songs
Betty Munro & The Blue Majestix was formed in October 2010 as a project band on a mission to compile an album of classic jazz tracks. Shona 'Betty' Munro set about forming the band which features Shona 'Betty' Munro on vocals, Tomas Zeman on piano, trumpet and percussion, Rob Rosa on violin, Catherine Llewellyn-Jones on double bass, Sophie Fishwick on drums and Raph Achache on guitar. The result is an album of classic jazz songs arranged by Tomas Zeman and recorded, mixed and produced by Tom Harris at S2udio in Nottingham. The album is in memory of Shona's nanna's Peggy and Joan and the songs selected for their timeless quality and beauty.
