Ambient Jazz Soundscapes

Sleek & Beautiful


We are a duo, consisting of Bev Knowlden, a Jazz saxophonist with rock tendencies with Peter Shearn, a Rock Guitarist with Jazz influences. Both share a fascination with ambience.

Sleek & Beautiful


Using Loops and electronics, Pete and Bev improvise music based on original formats along with some song standards such as 'Cry Me A River', 'Take 5' and 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' for example.

Sleek & Beautiful


Jazzient perform in restaurants for diners, in galleries for viewers, cinemas for guests, on the streets for people and always for enjoyment.
