Jazz in New York
Part 2: The 1930s And 1940s – Swing To Be-Bop
Saturday 28th January 2017
Cadogan Hall, 5 Sloane Square, London, SW1X 9DQ
London's ever popular Jazz Repertory Company, renowned for recreating key musical moments in the history of jazz, return to the spectacular surroundings of Chelsea's Cadogan Hall with their brand new production 'Jazz In New York: Part 2'. Following on from their 2015 sell out show 'Jazz In New York', the follow up charts The Big Apple's musical revolution from the 1930s into the 40s; a time when the Swing movement evolved into the exciting new sounds of Be-Bop.
Part two pays tribute to the unforgettable Minton’s Club jam sessions – the renowned hothouse and laboratory where Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and drummer Kenny Clarke came forth to turn the world of jazz on its head. The concerts grand finale will arrive in the form of the Gillespiana Big Band performing ”Showtime at the Apollo 1947”; an authentic recreation of how Dizzy Gillespie’s Orchestra would have been presented at the legendary Harlem theatre at the height of the Be-Bop craze. The latest jazz mixed with the percussion-led rhythms of Cuba will be accompanied by dancers showing the latest moves developed to the new rhythms of the era.
