Scotland’s cool and classy jazz diva Lorna Reid has grown a reputation as a world-class vocalist with recent performances at Rochester NY International Jazz Festival and a tour in Germany with gypsy jazz guitarist Lulo Reinhardt.

Her writing has met with critical acclaim and has established her as one of Scotland’s finest songwriters with an eclectic style that crosses jazz, blues and soul. Likened to Diana Krall ‘cool and gliding’ and Norah Jones ‘effortless blend of Jazz and Americana’.

The Lorna Reid Quintet features some of Scotland’s finest jazz musicians, plus special guests. Truth In My Heart is a blend of beautiful jazz standards and originals.

“Lorna Reid has the blues of Bessie Smith, swing of Ella, strength of Billie Holiday and soul of Nina Simone” (Rhein-Zeitung Germany)

“If the totality of the set is like anything at all it’s the classy retro music of Caro Emerald” (The Herald)
“Tasteful…elegant…soulful” (The Scotsman)
"Fabulous repertoire from easy listening to hot vintage swing" (Jazz House BBC Radio Scotland)
