Fresh from their September show at Wells Maltings and their 2022 SOLD OUT show, it’s a most welcome return by Chris Ingham's Jazz At The Movies group for this concert, performing their much heralded Swinging Christmas show.
JAZZ AT THE MOVIES is a unique jazz group formed to interpret movie themes and soundtrack songs taken from a wide-range of silver screen sources both familiar and obscure.
Sold out annually at Ronnie Scott's and regularly featured at Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho, Piano Smithfield at the Barbican and in many venues across England’s South East, this concert at the Wells Maltings, by Chris Ingham’s Jazz At The Movies: A Swinging Christmas! is the perfect weekend night out and to get you swinging into the holidays.
These concerts are fronted by acclaimed singer Joanna Eden ("The UK's answer to Norah Jones and Diana Krall"- Time Out)
Supporting her are the groovy sounds of Chris Ingham with his Quartet ("One of the finest combos in the country" – Jazz Journal).
Jazz At The Movies: A Swinging Christmas! gathers jazzy festive favourites as made famous by Ella, Eartha, Frank, Doris, Dean, Bing and a whole gang of cool celluloid cats and hip Hollywood chicks.
Joining Joanna's vocals and Chris' Piano Skills are Mark Crooks on saxophone and clarinet and Joe Pettitt – double bass and George Double – drums
Sit forward, be entertained and enjoy this taste of A Swinging Christmas
An enchanting show rich with anecdote, sophistication and swing, it was described by one audience member as "pure joy".
