Jazz at the Yvonne Arnaud



Saturday July 23rd 7pm

Imogen Ryall – vocals, Julian Nicholas – tenor sax, Tobie Carpenter – guitar, Marianne Windham – bass, Martin Pyne – percussion

Jazz singer IMOGEN RYALL’s skilful improvising and her unique and heartfelt interpretations of the jazz standard repertoire have made her a popular performer with both audiences and musicians alike. She is well known as an imaginative lyricist, and has performed at jazz venues throughout the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

Saxophonist JULIAN NICHOLAS has been a leading player on the international jazz scene since first coming to prominence in the mid 1980’s. Since then he has appeared with a veritable who’s who of world-renowned jazz artists and groups, including the likes of the iconic UK band Loose Tubes, Jimmy Witherspoon, Bobby Wellins, Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison, Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood of Breath, Liane Carroll and the Ronnie Scott’s House Band among others.

Imogen and Julian’s strong rapport on stage will make for an evening of creative and engaging music. Perfect for a summer’s evening!

“I love Imogen’s voice. She sings with heart and intelligence, sensuality and style; a natural musician.” Claire Martin OBE.

“His beautiful and creative playing makes Julian one of my favourite saxophonists” – Bobby Wellins
