JAZZ AT THE MOVIES!
and the Chris Ingham Quartet
After sell out performances across the country, Jazz At The Movies arrives at Wood Street Festival Street for a fun filled afternoon tour through some of the film world’s most swinging and romantic music.
JAZZ AT THE MOVIES is a unique jazz group who put an irresistible spin on classic movie themes and soundtrack songs from many films including The Pink Panther, Gilda, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Aristocrats and The Fabulous Baker Boys, and songs by Burt Bacharach, John Barry, Leslie Bricusse, Steven Sondheim, John Dankworth, and many others.
A regular sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s and the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, the group features evocative vocals by acclaimed singer JOANNA EDEN, bewitching saxophone and clarinet from MARK CROOKS (of the John Wilson Orchestra) and atmospheric textures and grooves from CHRIS INGHAM (piano), MARIANNE WINDHAM (bass) and GEORGE DOUBLE (drums).
