“….yes their music is full of bright melodies and enjoyable grooves but they’re not shackled by them. In the musical world of Not Now Charlie there’s always something of interest going on. “ 4/5 Stars
(Ian Mann, thejazzmann.com)
The roots of this Newcastle based band are set in the Jazz world but they draw on their mutual love of many other genres such as Rock, Neo Soul, Pop and R&B. Expect the perfect mix of Jazz harmony with infectious grooves and memorable melodies, all topped off with the excitement of improvisation. Taking their influence from the likes of Christian Scott, Manu Katche, Chris Potter, Roller Trio and Joshua Redman yet still managing to create their own individual sound. Their debut was made at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2014 to an enthusiastic audience and had a great reception when they supported The Slowlight Quartet in Jan 2015. Their full length live album was released in 2016 on Jazz Sound Records.
