“A band that everyone is going to be talking about. Life-enhancing”-
Green Tangerines are a 5-piece ensemble whose sound nods respectively to 70s Jazz Fusion, whilst simultaneously carving their own path in the UK Jazz scene of today. Comprised of – saxophonist and vocalist Sarah Sands, trumpet player Sam Taylor, guitarist Jack O’Hanlon, bassist Fran Mills and drummer, Tom Hudson – Green Tangerines have been making their name in their adopted home Liverpool.
Since forming in 2017, the quintet have taken their music further afield to Ireland playing the International Blues on the Bay Festival, as well as a BBC Radio Ulster live session. They have continued to shake up the jazz scenes in Bristol, London and Manchester, playing everywhere from riverside boats to Band On The Wall. Regularly gigging in the Liverpool jazz scene, they’ve also been billed as support to Shaun Martin (Snarky Puppy, Kirk Franklin) in collaboration with Liverpools ParrJazz, one of their biggest gigs to date.
“Jazz-funk masterclass from a band billed as one of the most exciting bands to come out of Liverpool in recent years, their performance lived up to every expectation.”
“All the way from Liverpool, you’ll be hearing more from them.. Bringing the funk how it should be brought”
“Green Tangerine deliver a very 70s inspired blend of jazz and funk. You get full-on ass-movin’ vocals, tenor sax, trumpet, guitar, bass and drums – driving you to dance in your platforms, flares, knitted tank top and big collared shirt.”
“It’s fun and it’s funky”
"...Green Tangerines are right up there as one of the most entertaining of the lot. They know how to keep their audience engaged, they calm it down and then ramp it up again. And when they do the latter, then they’re just pretty brilliant.”
