The band takes its inspiration from the heady times of the 1940’s and 50’s where, during the course of a night, tango and jazz bands used to share the same stage and audiences could appreciate both genres. Having evolved over years of research and experimentation, Tango Jazz Quartet have mastered an exquisitely sensitive blend of smooth, sometimes cheeky melodies and rhythms of tango, mixed with the harmony and improvisation of jazz.

Currently on a break from fulltime touring, Shannon Hope is utilising her other talents in digital creative spaces… but there will be another studio album, and some exclusive performances every now and then. It’s not over. It’s just different.
