Their style can be described as post-Coltrane modern jazz. They love any song that has a beautiful melody and interesting chords, which makes their repertoire eclectic and includes a mix of jazz standards and popular songs from all eras. Both Nancy and Jim have been inducted into the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame.

But whatever they play, you’re sure to enjoy their music and have a fun time listening.
It’s Brooke! I’m 19, from a tiny town, living in Minneapolis, MN. I waited a long time to come to the wonderful music scene of this city, and I am loving it. My debut EP, Welcome To My World, told the stories of a small-town girl going through the rollercoaster of teenage love & heartbreak. These days I have been bringing out a different side to my music, with lot’s of R&B/Soul influences, as well as influences from an Indie side of the playing field. I can't wait for you all to hear what I have been working on since I released my EP. Meanwhile, connect with me on social media, come to a gig, hangout & listen. Welcome to the world of Brooke Elizabeth.
