Jim Mullen
 
Jim Mullen was guitarist with Pete Brown & Piblokto in 1970 before playing with Brian Auger's Oblivion Express.  He then joined Kokomo and later toured with the Average White Band.
 
In the mid-70s he met tenor sax player Dick Morrissay and throughout the 1980s he found critical notice as joint leader of Morrisay-Mullen.
 
Mullen has toured and recorded extensively under his own name and has also played and recorded with a wide range of artists including Mose Allison, Claire Martin, Mike Carr and Georgie Fame.  In 2014 he featured prominently on the Citrus Sun album "People of Tomorrow".
 
Mullen has won many British music awards including "Best Guitar" in the British Telecom Jazz Awards (1994, 1996 and 2000).
 
 
Zoe Francis
 
Zoe Francis is a singer to listen out for.  She communicates a love and understanding of the classic American songbook with the lightest of touches.  Zoe started singing while living in New York, learning her craft through Barry Harris workshops and live performances.   She has now established herself with her first album "Looking for A Boy", a plea to which fabled guitarist Jim Mullen provided the answer!  The two are now a famed duo and given Jim's unparalleled musicianship are leading lights in the UK Jazz scene.
