The formation of Slide By Slide is the brainchild of Kevin Grenfell who has enrolled the musical talents of fellow trombonist Richard Leach, and in the rhythm section a dazzling array of musicianship with Graham Smith on drums, John Fellows on bass and Roger Heeley on piano. Kevin is more than pleased to have their services as they are all busy musicians with various bands (no names, no pack drill), and their individual CVs would fill a page by itself.

The texture and timbre of Kevin and Richard’s individual playing styles give their repertoire a depth and tone that’s sure to please, with titles ranging from the traditional songbook through to the contemporary.Whether dancing, listening or singing along, Slide By Slide has something for everyone.

Sample Tracks:



It's A Sin To Tell A Lie


Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans

Bye Bye Blues / Side By Side


"This was an evening of wonderful music with a repertoire different from other bands all mixed with humour and jokes. Very entertaining and I highly recommend the band to any other jazz club promoter for bookings"

Pershore Jazz Club

Since Kevin and Richard began their collabaration they have swiftly established themselves in a unique position on the Jazz scene. They seem better every time I hear them and clearly enjoy making some wonderful Jazz.

Barry Clare, Just Jazz November 2011
