McColl & Loops
9th July 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
McColl & Loops were formed around three years ago to bring an intimate stripped back jazz and latin sound, taking inspiration from great jazz duos such as Tuck and Patti, Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass.
Sharing a passion for jazz across the eras from the 1920s to current day, Kaz and Greg strive to create an authentic live jazz set with their own signature vocal/guitar arrangements.
Kaz McColl is a versatile vocalist with years of experience singing on the London and southeast jazz scene; performing at venues such as the Jazz Cafe, Jazz Bistro, Hilton Hotel, as well as pubs, restaurants, festivals and private functions. Her vocal influences range from Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, to Astrud Gilberto and Melody Gardot.
After studying Singing Musicianship at Goldsmiths College in the 90s, Kaz performed regularly at jazz jams and singers’ nights, forming her first jazz trio. Kaz now performs with popular jazz outfits Maze Hill Messengers, McColl & Loops Duo and her all female jazz band at venues around London and the southeast.
Greg Loops originates from San Francisco but now calls Greenwich his home. He has been inspired by guitar greats such as Jim Hall, Joe Pass and Wes Montgomery. He has been playing guitar on the live music scene in jazz, swing and function bands for a number of years. Greg also plays guitar in a gipsy jazz inspired duo, and electric and double bass in an instrumental jazz quartet.
