Joanna Eden, vocals Chris Ingham, piano Owen Morgan, bass George Double, drums Featuring the Royal Hospital School Big Band
Along with the acclaimed Chris Ingham Trio, Joanna Eden presents a ‘labour of love’ show celebrating the music of her vocal hero Ella Fitzgerald. From the throw-away A-Tisket A-Tasket which brought Ella to fame in the forties with the Chick Webb Orchestra to later songbook album classics like Porter’s Every Time We Say Goodbye and Gershwin’s Someone to Watch Over Me, Eden mines the rich seam of Ella Fitzgerald’s unrivalled canon with humility, style and obvious deep affection. As with previous jazz nights the concert will also feature the RHS Big Band in a number of items specially arranged for this gig.
