  • Description

    Think Portishead meets Charlie Parker or Miles Davis remixed by Massive Attack and you're close to understanding new Russian-born singer Nelli Rees. Her unique fusion of dance with ultra-cool jazz and a pop sensibility has already been tagged 'Trip Bop'. Cool yet catchy, dark yet distinctly danceable, Nelli's sound is already captivating the beard-stroking crowd at Ronnie Scott's and the dancefloor at Smooth, Ministry Of Sound's Garage night. With her dance kicks and jazz licks, the outrageously sexy Russian is making waves in the music scene and Jazz Noir oozes eccentricity and 2003 creativity with the help of a six-piece band composing of drums, guitar, bass, keyboard, trumpet and sax. Music business whores Paul Smith and Bob Bradley, who've worked with the likes of the Appleton sisters, Sugababes and Madasun, play on and produce this stunning debut album.
