Vintage treatment of a classic.

About the Album

Swing Noir are made up of Serena Sykes and Jim Knowler. They formed in November 2014, having travelled to Holland in August, they stayed with a friend, where an old bass stood in the corner, Serena found her love of the instrument and by October she had saved up enough for one of her own. With their combined love of music, and many hours to fill together, they practiced hard and performed their first set in December 2014, at the Kings Theatre in Ramsgate. They have gone from strength to strength, bringing their own sound to some wonderful classic songs, with Jim’s gypsy jazz influences and Serena’s love of the old Swing favourites, they bring you the sound of Swing Noir.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
