Cheek to Cheek with Ella & Louis, live at Ronnie Scott's: Joanna Eden and Enrico Tomasso with trio

POSTPONED TO 27 SEPTEMBER TBC

Five-time British Jazz Awards winner, trumpeter Enrico Tomasso met Louis Armstrong as a child and brings true affection and a wealth of knowledge to this celebration of the musical union of two titans of 20th Century Jazz.

 

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s legendary and long-lived musical partnership was full to the brim with love, humour and effortless mastery of their respective instruments.  Their duets on songs like ‘Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off’, ‘Cheek to Cheek’ and ‘A Fine Romance’ have become classics.

 

A life-long Ella fan, Joanna Eden has toured her ‘Embraceable Ella’ show all over the world garnering responses like ‘bloody marvellous’ from Dame Cleo Laine and a standing ovation from Ella’s own archivist John Hasse of the Smithsonian Institution.

 

Joanna & Enrico are backed by the Joe Pettit trio featuring Dave Newton (Best Jazz Pianist - British Jazz Awards) on piano, Joe Pettit on bass and George Double on drums. 

Sunday 18 October 11am

In this acclaimed show, singer/pianist Joanna Eden finally owns up to her passion for musical theatre and treads the line between jazz cool and heart-filled storytelling.  Launched at the EFG London Jazz Festival in 2017, Sondheim & Me show traces Sondheim’s work from West Side Story to Into the Woods, seeking to explore the jazzy side of Sondheim without losing the theatrical truth.

Joanna will be joined by accomplished musical theatre actress Leigh McDonald (National Theatre’s Olivier Winning cast of Honk, Mamma Mia world tour as ‘Rosie’) who brings an authentic musical theatre sound to proceedings. Enjoy Joanna’s jazzy take on Sondheim classics like ‘Send in the Clowns’, ‘Being Alive’, ‘Giants in the Sky’ and ‘The Miller’s Son’ whilst Leigh gives her mind-blowing rendition of ‘Not Getting Married’ from Company.  With beautiful duets on ‘Pretty Women’ and ‘The Ladies Who Lunch’ and an a cappella rendition of ‘Somewhere’, Eden gives Sondheim’s works a fresh new approach.

Joanna and Leigh will be joined by the world class George Double Trio

The Stables will be opening its doors from 11am, so before each concert you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a hot bacon roll, along with a full bar and snack bar service – the Sunday papers will be available too!

After the resounding success of 2019’s lunchtime session, an extended cherry-picked selection of the more subtle, refined and surprising examples of the songwriter’s art from the era of glitter, flares and safety pins. Featuring singer JOANNA EDEN - long-time mentor to pop superstar Sam Smith - and CHRIS INGHAM rated as “among the cream of UK pianists” (JAZZ JOURNAL).
