Live Jazz Concerts & Performance Dates:
100yrs Of Jazz In 99 Mins - 7th June, Cadogan Hall
The world's first history of jazz, from its birth in Ragtime to the present day. The five multi-instrumental jazz virtuosi create a highly entertaining journey through the decades taking in everything from New Orleans to Be Bop, Swing to Latin, Hot to Cool, from Chicago and New York to around the world. An A to Z of jazz’s biggest names from Louis Armstrong to Joe Zawinul live again in the ensemble’s brilliant recreations.
Benny Goodman 1938 - Cadogan Hall
Bandleader and clarinetist Pete Long presents a superlative recreation of one of the greatest events in jazz history - the 1938 Carnegie Hall concert. Seventy five years ago back in the freezing winter it was New York's hottest ticket. Benny would, no doubt, have been delighted to learn that the music from that memorable night can still sell out a concert hall all these years later. If you couldn't get tickets to the sell out run at Cadogan Hall, now's your chance at The Mill at Sonning.
