Described as ‘EST with vocals’, ISQ are without doubt one of the most original bands on the UK scene. An elegant mix of jazz-pop songs, powerful lyrics and Nordic Jazz influences, they feature Irene Serra on vocals/electronics (Wynton Marsalis, Norma Winstone, US3), Richard Sadler on double bass (founding member of the Neil Cowley Trio) Naadia Sheriff on piano (Yazz Ahmed, Hermeto Pascoal) and Chris Nickolls on drums (Andy Sheppard, Jean Touissant).
