The return of the joyous, jazzy A Swinging Christmas show with the Chris Ingham Quintet featuring Joanna Eden (aka Jazz at the Movies). Rated as “sublime seasonal jazz” by BBC Radio, this show is the perfect way to begin the festivities.
An annual sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Jazz Club Dean Street, the Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall 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.
