Soupy Twist are a sublime jazz guitar duo that bring the finesse of a top jazz club to your venue of choice. Whether it is smooth background music at a sophisticated dinner, or swinging hot jazz to a buzzing party or reception, this remarkable outfit can adapt themselves perfectly to your needs. The two guitarists conspire to intermingle silky smooth bass-lines, powerful improvisations and groovy rhythms, to create a dazzling hybrid of everything from cool and mellow jazz to swing, latin and bebop.

This sublime duo can even expand to a trio or more with the addition of highly accomplished guest musicians, resulting in fresh, exotic and spontaneous music...
