Janice Day

& Martin Litton

Authentic Vintage Jazz Singer &
Internationally Acclaimed Pianist 

A Perfect Blend of Virtuosity, Melody and Laughter
“… remarkable originals who evoke the jazz past while keeping their originalities intact. Martin is a splendidly inventive improviser, able to summon up the Ancestors — Earl, Fats, Jelly, Teddy — without (as they say) breaking stride. But he’s not merely copying four-bar modules; he’s so internalized the great swinging orchestral styles that he moves around freely in them. Janice is deeply immersed in the tender sounds of the Twenties and Thirties — from Annette Hanshaw forwards — and she is such a crafty impersonator that it’s easy to forget that she, brightly shining, is in the midst of it all.” – Jazz Lives

Martin Litton’s lovingly authentic arrangements are sought after by musicians around the globe. Based in Hay-on-Wye with his talented and entertaining partner vocalist Janice Day, Litton’s eclectic repertoire encompasses Ragtime, Blues, Jazz and popular and novelty songs from the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
