Win tickets to see THE JAZZ REPERTORY COMPANY PRESENTS: 100 YEARS OF JAZZ IN 99 MINUTES at Cadogan Hall (Sunday 8th May 2016, 7:00pm)
Returning to Chelsea's Cadogan Hall after its sell out debut at the venue in 2013, this fantastically entertaining show encompasses the history of jazz from its beginnings in Ragtime through to the present day. The six multi-instrumental jazz virtuosi create a fascinating 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 interspersed with enchanting and humorous stories from the music’s history.
"Quite simply one of the most daring and brilliantly executed pieces of jazz entertainment doing the rounds today – Don't miss out!" - Jazz Journal
‘In Pete Long, reeds player, raconteur, bandleader and all-round wit, we have a genuine home-grown treasure. If his projects – ‘Echoes of Ellington’ chief among them – have attracted few column inches in the past, it is partly because Long, who knows this music inside out, appears to wear his expertise so lightly. In another life, he might easily have been a vaudeville entertainer.’ - Clive Davis (The Times)
