    Zoe Francis is a singer who communicates a love and understanding of the classic American songbook with the lightest of touches. It sounds easy and casual until you notice how cleverly each turn of phrase falls in just the right place, both rhythmically and to chime with the meaning of the words.  Zoe started singing while living in New York performing in night clubs with great musicians.  Zoe and Jim are now a famed duo and given Jim's unparalleled musicianship, are leading lights in the UK Jazz scene, having recently sold out at Ronnie Scott’s.

    Jim Mullen is a multi-award winning guitarist with a unique jazz style and sound, who is regarded as the high priest of the instrument by most young jazz guitarists. His quintet was in existence from 1996 and is one of the most powerful ever to appear on the British jazz scene.
