100 Years of Jazz in 99 Minutes

 

The Jazz Repertory Company's most popular show features six multi-instrumentalists performing the most significant music in jazz history. Presented with wit and knowledge by all six musicians, this is a hugely entertaining show for not only those who know and love jazz but for those who have only the vaguest notions of the music but quite like the noise it makes. Over the last five years the show has been performed everywhere from a drawing room in a country house for 60 people to a sell out show for 900 at London's Cadogan Hall.
