We first met Diana at ReVoice! 2011 when she wowed us as part of the much loved and already greatly missed Kenny Wheeler‘s supergroup Somethin’ Else.

This year Diana returns with two giants of the British jazz scene – long term collaborator and pianist John Taylor and saxophonist Julian Siegel.  Together they will explore the music of Paul McCartney and much more.
