An evening of classics and curiosities from the century that produced a treasure of rich and evocative popular music performed beneath Gaia, the spectacular seven-metre replica of planet Earth.Taking in standards by Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael and Cole Porter along with beautiful 1960s and 1970s songs by Carole King, Burt Bacharach, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Jeff Lynne, among many others, Jo and Chris intersperse the music with anecdote and insight.
Joanna Eden is an acclaimed singer who was teacher and mentor to Sam Smith for nine years and has appeared at Ronnie Scott’s many times with her salute to Ella Fitzgerald and with the group Jazz at the Movies. The Apex is her favourite venue!
Chris Ingham has released three admired CDs celebrating the music of Hoagy Carmichael, Dudley Moore and Stan Getz. He has been rated as “up there with the cream of the UK’s pianists” (Jazz Journal) and is the proprietor and house pianist at Jazz at the Hunter Club, Bury St Edmunds.
