A Swinging Christmas with Jazz at the Movies
Start Date: 21 December 2021
Start Time: 7.30pm
End Date: 21 December 2021

The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

The return of the joyous, jazzy 'A Swinging Christmas' with the Chris Ingham Quintet featuring Joanna Eden (aka 'Jazz at the Movies') for a seventh consecutive (almost) year.

Rated as “sublime seasonal jazz” by BBC Radio Suffolk’s Stephen Foster, this show is the perfect way to begin the festivities.

An annual sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s and festive concerts all over the UK, the show’s ever-evolving song selection delivers a delightful, stocking-full of 20th century holiday classics and curiosities, a unique blend of irreverence, poignancy and joy.

Featuring pianist/MC Chris Ingham (host of Bury’s Jazz at the Hunter Club), acclaimed chanteuse Joanna Eden (longtime teacher/mentor to pop superstar Sam Smith), saxophonist/clarinettist Mark Crooks (world-class woodwind star of the renowned John Wilson Orchestra), bassist Joe Pettitt (leader of the Len Phillips Big Band) and drummer George Double (Suffolk-based drum hero, crooner and matinee idol).

“One of the finest combos in the country and a seriously talented vocalist” - Jazz Journal

Tickets: £21.50
