Playing hit after hit, from the dance floor classics ‘I Wish’ and ‘Superstition’ to beautiful arrangements of ‘My Cherie Amour’ and ‘Over-joyed’, the set also includes huge hit compositions by Stevie for other artists.

The band features Derek Nash alongside the mesmeric vocalist Noel McCalla. Noel McCalla’s long association with the brilliant Morrisey Mullen Band earned him acclaim as “one of Britain’s best Soul Singers” (Blues and Soul Magazine) and, for more than 19 years, Noel’s searing, soulful vocals were featured with the iconic Manfred Mann’s “Earth Band”. He also provided vocals on Mike Rutherford’s highly acclaimed album, ‘Small-creep’s Day’, and is often featured with jazz funk band, Mezzoforte.

British Jazz Award-winning Derek Nash – bandleader, composer, arranger, record producer and engineer – is one of the UK’s busiest jazz musicians.  He is leader of six bands, each with its own unique sound and featuring some of the top jazz musicians in the UK today.

Derek has been a full-time member of the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra since 2004 and is a member of the Ronnie Scott’s Blues Explosion.  With these bands, he has enjoyed sharing the stage with many great artists including Tom Jones, Eric Clapton, David Sanborn, Jack Bruce, Amy Winehouse, Michael Buble and Sir Paul McCartney.  He is one of the most in-demand and respected guest instrumentalists for jazz clubs across the UK, and has received numerous nominations in the British Jazz Awards. In the jazz-funk world, Derek has performed with David Benoit, Brian Culbertson, Ernie Watts, Mezzoforte, Nelson Rangell and Don and Dave Grusin.

Derek is a prolific composer, regularly penning compositions for his various bands and undertaking commissions.  He has also composed for television and radio. As an arranger, and following in the footsteps of his father, Pat Nash (who was an arranger for the BBC Northern Dance Orchestra) Derek has worked for many major artists including Jools Holland, Annie Lennox, David Sanborn, Nile Rogers, Gregory Porter and Chaka Khan.

Alongside Derek and Noel are Dave Newton (Keys), Nic France (Drums), Tim Cansfield (Guitars), and Jonathan Noyce (Bass), who between them have performed with the Bee Gees,Bill Withers, Vanessa Mae, Gary Moore and Jethro Tull.
