london jazz quartet bands

London based Jazz Quartet

Good as Gold are a London-based jazz quartet that focuses on vocal jazz in the style of the 1950s and 1960s.

A quick listen to one of thier more recent recordings should give you a good idea of what the band sounds like.

Good as Gold are increasingly busy with regular gigs at small clubs and upmarket pubs in and around London and are slowly making a name for ourselves in the local jazz scene.

Good as Gold’s repertoire covers standards from the Great American Songbook, cheeky 1950s numbers, beautiful ballads and classic swing numbers inspired by the great Ella Fitzgerald, blues in the style of Billie Holliday and Bessie Smith as well as latin rhythms, even sung in Icelandic.
