Algorisms is the brainchild of singist Alison Limerick & keyboarder Gordon Hulbert.

London Jazz Combo

Based in London, their music is an eclectic mix of styles, brought together in a soulful jazz hybrid. Picking from their own list of favourite Jazz, Pop and Film Soundtrack standards, our London jazz duo treat each song in its own unique way, exploring time signatures, reharmonisation, lyrical re-writes and much more besides.  

People Who They Are Not Like

Although Algorisms can be called a ‘jazz’ outfit, due to their love of jazz harmonies and improvisation,  they also have a wide spectrum of non-jazz influences, including Classic and Acoustic-Soul, Funk, Gospel, Mainstream Pop and Classical genres, which add to the mélange that is their take on Nu Jazz.

Algorisms Live

Algorisms work with different sized line-ups, from a vocal/piano duo up to a quintet or larger. They have performed in small jazz venues, in concert halls and at major festivals. Many of the UK’s finest players have enlivened the stage, including Roberto Manzin, Mark Mondesir, Neville Malcolm, Winston Clifford, Jerry Brown and Greg Heath.

Alison Limerick

Perhaps better known as a singer at the heart of the international club scene, Alison was also heavily involved from day one in the UK’s soul/jazz arena – particularly with JTQ, Roger Beaujolais (Vibraphonic, the Beaujolais Band), Full Flava and Courtney Pine and she has an impressive list of credits, recording and performing live with these artists. Promoting her own albums ‘And Still I Rise’ and ‘With A Twist’ on BMG and ‘Spirit Rising’, Alison toured her live band around Europe and the far East and was featured on the UK’s prime time Saturday Night Live. As a session singer she has worked most notably with George Michael, Pete Murphy and Lamont Dozier.

Gordon Hulbert

Musical director and producer Gordon Hulbert has a long history playing live with diverse artists such as Hugh Masekela, Chaka Khan, Alexander O’Neal, Heatwave etc. He was a member of the ‘Mr Bongo’ label’s latin supergroup Mr Hermano and joined multiple BMI award-winning folktronica band Psapp for their European and US tours in 2006. He leads a double life as a composer/producer for movies and TV, opening his own recording studio in Notting Hill in 1997 and as such has collaborated with Willy Russell, Bill Laswell, Axel Kroell, the Berman Brothers etc
