Jazz At The Movies
Using superior repertoire originally introduced or notably exploited on the silver screen as their starting point, JATM apply their refined dramatic and jazz sensibilities to produce sounds that celebrate the meeting point of songcraft and swingcraft. With material ranging from John Dankworth’s sultry noir ballad “All Gone” (The Servant, 1963) through the exotic kitsch of “From Russia With Love” (From Russia With Love, 1963) to the extrovert, feel-good swing of “Everybody Wants To Be A Cat” (The Aristocats, 1970), JATM create vibrant, entertaining music to delight song-buffs and jazz lovers alike.
Joanna Eden as The Singer : An acclaimed singer-songwriter in her own right ("melody, mystery and bite" Mojo, "UK's answer to Diana Krall" Time Out), Joanna allows her creamy-voiced, sensitive interpretive skills and jazz diva tendencies full reign in JATM.
Mark Crooks – Sax/Clarinet: Formerly of the Clare Teal Band and currently featured soloist with the celebrated John Wilson Orchestra, Mark and his authentic swing-to-bop skills have been given rapturous reception in concert halls all over the world. “A star on clarinet” Jazz UK.
Chris Ingham as The Pianist/MC: Formerly pianist/singer of the Flanagan Ingham Quartet (“One of Britain’s most original bands” Observer), Chris is a producer, author and jazz correspondent for Mojo. He plays in Rebop and leads the house trio at the Hunter Club, Bury St Edmunds.
Mick Hutton as The Bassist: Mick is "one of Europe’s finest bass players’ (Steve Rubie, 606 Club) and has played with a diverse range of world-class artists including Bill Bruford, John Taylor, Tim Garland, Humphrey Lyttlteton, Django Bates and Elkie Brooks, among many others.
George Double as The Drummer: George is one of the UK's most versatile percussionists, playing regularly with American singing legend Jack Jones, guitarist Mark Flanagan (Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra) and a wide range of West End and touring theatre productions. He is proprietor of Hadleigh Jazz Club, Suffolk.
