After sell out performances across the country, Chris Ingham’s group Jazz At The Movies arrives at Pizza Express Dean Street for a fun filled Sunday Lunchtime tour through some of the film world’s most swinging and romantic music.
JAZZ AT THE MOVIES is a unique jazz group formed specifically 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 at Ronnie Scott’s, The Other Palace, 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 reedsman of the John Wilson Orchestra, MARK CROOKS and atmospheric textures and grooves from CHRIS INGHAM (piano), ARNIE SOMOGYI (bass) and GEORGE DOUBLE (drums).
