Chris Ingham’s Jazz At The Movies
featuring Joanna Eden

At Piano Smithfield, Long Lane, Barbican, London

(100 yards from the new Elizabeth Line Farringdon Station)

After sell out performances across the country, Chris Ingham’s group Jazz At The Movies – featuring Joanna Eden, return to Piano Smithfield, for a fun filled evening tour through some of the film world’s most swinging  and romantic  music.

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. 

With writings from Bacharach, Barry, Bricuse, Carmichael, Mancini , Gershwin, Sondheim and so many more; with jazz standards including “The Man That Got Away”, “Close Enough For Love”, “Speak Low”, “On Green Dolphin Street” and even “Pink Panther”, audiences are spell bound by the combination of joyous film memories and inspiring music.

With a reputation for vibrant music, deep repertoire and droll presentation, JATM have become a regular sell-out not only at Dean Street, but also at Ronnie Scott’s, Piano Smithfield at the Barbican, the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room and many jazz clubs, theatres and arts centres throughout the UK.

JATM features evocative vocals by acclaimed singer Joanna Eden, bewitching saxophone and clarinet from star player in the John Wilson Orchestra, Mark Crooks plus atmospheric textures and grooves from Chris Inghampiano, Joe Pettittdouble bass and George Doubledrums

Here’s a video taste of what’s in store with Joanna giving delightful voice to “Meglio Stasera

And a swinging number from their recent recording, with Joanna

in fine voice and Mark adding saxophone flavours with “Close Enough For Love”

 

Great songs, great films, great band, great singer...one of the finest vocal albums I've heard for quite a while”-  BEBOP SPOKEN HERE
