We love the Festival of Chichester.  Jazz Smugglers have become one of the famous FESTIVAL BANDS in SUSSEX. The JAZZ SMUGGLERS EVENTS are all different. Sometimes the music is full of Gershwin and Cole Porter. At other times we are playing songs loved by Jazz Club patrons.

We play mainly in CHICHESTER, WEST SUSSEX, which is close to BOGNOR for LIVE JAZZ, but we also work as a live JAZZ BAND in WORTHING, and as a JAZZ BAND in PORTSMOUTH,  There are not many JAZZ BANDS IN CHICHESTER, there are one or two live BANDS IN BOGNOR, more BANDS IN WORTHING and even more BANDS IN PORTSMOUTH.

There are many JAZZ BANDS IN EAST SUSSEX but far fewer JAZZ BANDS IN WEST SUSSEX. If you want soft romantic music for WEDDING RECEPTIONS SUSSEX. or a LIVE JAZZ TRIO at your WEDDING or PRIVATE PARTY as background music book us please.

Bernie's tune This song was made famous by the Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker quartet. Matt on tenor starts off the solos. The Coda surprises.


Blue bossa This song made Joe Henderson famous amongst jazz enthusiasts. We put in a final 16 bar session where the band all jam together.


Funkaleroo Bill Evans wrote this song, and our version uses front line harmonies behind the melody. No root notes on the piano chords


Perdido Duke Ellington never heard his song played as a Ska with the bridge in swing. The short phrases made it perfect vehicle for bebop players.


Black Coffee Some great blues guitar playing by Steve backs this vocal by Anne. Sad but classic song.


Summertime We start with a languid tenor solo by Andrew, then we double the tempo finishing fast. Bass and drums exchange 4's. Gershwin 1933  


Ladybird Tad Dameron wrote a number of classics for jazz, all of them sounding happy. Listen for the harmonies in the front line and the bass solo


All blues 3/4 Miles Davis jazz standard. Our song notes drums 4 bars, guitar bar 9, ensemble bar 17, coda extra 4 bars leaving just horns.


Autumn leaves The descending minor chords make this French song sound sad, but it is beautiful. Listen for the fills by Andy's soprano sax  


Little sunflower Lovely little modal song, only three chords.  Our version has a hypnotic bass feel and builds harmonies around the second A section           


Watermelon man Herbie Hancock 1962. A 4 bar bass intro, and a 4 bar piano riff and a jazz funk feel. We stop on the final break  - different.  


Anything goes A happy Cole Porter song with wonderful cheeky lyrics sung by Anne. Lovely clarinet solo


Danny           Lovely rhythmic original by Steve, our guitar player who also sings the song  


Love for Sale  Wonderful old Cole Porter song. We’ve added a Stevie Wonder riff to the Latin and Swing.
