Jazz; Skintight The Nylons.

The Canadian vocal quartet blends all kinds of a cappella from jazz scat to doo-wop and cover everything from jazz standards like Teach Me Tonight and Orange Coloured Sky to soulful pop re-workings like The Doobie Brothers' What A Fool Believes and Stevie Wonder's All In Love Is Fair.

What A Fool... includes some saxophone from Dave Koz and there is some electronic percussion but the rest of what you hear is all voices.

They can write as well as sing with Crybaby and Night Train the two original compositions.

There is a novel medley of K T Tunstall's Suddenly I See with Antonio Carlos Jobim's Agua de Beber, and a forceful take on Etta James's Seven Day Fool.

The blend is as tight as you would expect from a group that has been together for 32 years.
