Pete Komor

As well as my own groups I am involved in several other projects, including:

The Pete Komor Septet

“Beautifully conceived programming, immaculately presented” 
– Paula Gardiner

The septet’s repertoire consists mainly of original music by Pete Komor, as well as some carefully chosen and arranged works by other modern jazz artists such as Guillermo Klien and Kurt Rosenwinkle. 

The band has performed many gigs since its creation in December 2013, highlights including Langnau Jazz nights Switzerland, "Montreux meets Brienz" Jazz festival Switzerland, the Amser Jazz Time tour with Huw Warren’s ‘Tails for Wales’,  The Richard Burton theatre, as well as local jazz venues such as Café Jazz Cardiff, and Dempsey's jazz bar Cardiff.

The Mañana Collective is led by Cuban flautist Jose Zalba-Smith. The band bonded over their shared love of Latin rhythm and came together to record their debut album, featuring Jose's Father Javier Zalba (Buena Vista Social Club Orquestra, Irakere).

Smith/Komor/Reynolds Trio

“Very impressive playing all round” – Jason Rebello

The Smith/Komor/Reynolds trio was born in Cardiff, out of a mutual love of playing in a harmony-less trio.  This lineup creates a sense of openness and allows the conversational element of the music to be explored to is fullest.

The Hot Shoes are a commercial swing band formed for swing dancing, corporate events, and weddings. Have a look at our website for lots more videos and information! For bookings either use the website, or contact me directly through this website.
