Welcome to my Spring newsletter. I hope life is treating you well. March is a difficult time of the year for me, but as always, with a little more light, a little more warmth, my mood lifts and the music starts to happen....
FROM ELLA TO ELVIS
I'm happy to announce a little tour of a new set, From Ella to Elvis, with wonderful musicians: Mark Edwards, piano, Pete Maxfield, double bass, and Lee Goodall, alto sax. Spanning the Great American Songbook years, through to the early 21st century, expect beautiful songs of love and longing written by the best songwriters ever. I so love this set.
We are playing in London and the south-east, and, in July, will also be taking this fab concert to Italy -- can't wait!
In the UK, the tour dates are:
31st March, Royal Esplanade Hotel, Ryde, ISLE OF WIGHT
13th May, The Verdict, BRIGHTON (Brighton Festival Fringe)
27th May, The Verdict, BRIGHTON (Brighton Festival Fringe)
13th June, Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho, LONDON
30th June, Underground Theatre, EASTBOURNE
ALL OR NOTHING
We are still being asked to perform the beautiful music from the Billie Holiday songbook - a joy, as ever. If you're in the south west please do come on down to our gig at the lovely Chapel Arts centre in October.
Finally, we now have a Facebook page, with news, views, thoughts and musings. Please give the page a 'like' if you're on Facebook and share if you can. Here is the link https://www.facebook.com/edanaminghellajazz/
Thanks all, and so looking forward to sharing lovely jazz music with you in the coming months.
