FRIDAY MUSIC: Hetty Loxston and the Jazzato Band, by JD

"Hetty Loxston, a classical and jazz-trained singer from London formed Hetty and the Jazzato Band at the end of 2015 with clarinettist, and childhood friend Charlotte Jolly, and three Italian musicians Fabrizio Bonacci, Riccardo Castellani and Alessandro Cimaschi, upon moving back to London after a period of living in Bologna and Rome for five years.

"The band was conceived as a musical project that would aim to explore the lesser-known, gems of Italian Jazz from the 1920s-1960s with fresh arrangements and lyrics translated into English for a current, international audience. It was also a passion project for Hetty, an Italophile who wished to share the Italian music and culture she had grown to love, following a long period of living, working and studying in Italy."
