NEHH: NJTOS - Bill Wells and Wolf
Nothing Ever Happens Here
Not jazz, not a trio and not entirely Scottish, The National Jazz Trio of Scotland are Bill Wells (piano laptop), Aby Vulliamy (vocals, viola), Kate Sugden (vocals, marimba), and Gerard Black (vocals). They have recorded three albums for the Berlin-based Karaoke Kalk label, two (Standards Vol ll and lll) of mainly original material and one, (The NJTOS’s Xmas Album) of well known carols. They have shared the same bill with names as diverse as Teenage Fanclub, James Blackshaw and Steve Beresford and collaborated with artists including Shugo Tokumaru and Benni Hemm Hemm.
"the heart-in-mouth quality of the live show is an electric manifestation of the jeopardy in the songs"
