JAZZ AT THE MOVIES is a unique jazz group who put an irresistible spin on classic movie themes and soundtrack songs from silver screen sources both familiar and obscure.
Full of rich swing and droll anecdote, JATM features music from many films including The Pink Panther, Gilda, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Aristocrats and The Fabulous Baker Boys, and songs by Burt Bacharach, John Barry, Leslie Bricusse, Stephen Sondheim, John Dankworth, and many others.
A regular sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s and the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, the group features evocative vocals by acclaimed singer JOANNA EDEN, bewitching saxophone and clarinet from MARK CROOKS (of the John Wilson Orchestra) and atmospheric textures and grooves from CHRIS INGHAM (piano), JOE PETTITT (bass) and GEORGE DOUBLE (drums).
