The Sloane Street Piano Quartet is strongly influenced by the music and styling of the 1930-50s small groups of Nat King Cole, George Shearing, and Errol Garner. Placing the melody above all else, the quartet often has multiple instruments playing in unison or features intricate harmony lines. The addition of bowed string bass solos, rich piano chords and the use of a flugelhorn (large bore trumpet) with its warm, velvet sound make this a light, subtle but highly sophisticated and swinging sound perfect for cocktails. This line-up can also be augmented to feature male or female vocals in the same style if required.
