Thursday 12th March 7.30pm
at The Michael Malnick Centre
Our March jazz concert at “The Foyer Jazz Club” at Leighton Park School will feature Joanna Eden’s Embraceable Ella.
In this joyful celebration of her vocal hero Ella Fitzgerald, Joanna Eden mines the rich seam of Fitzgerald’s unrivalled canon with humility, style and obvious deep affection. Her ability to combine jazz vocal dexterity with heartfelt emotion and great storytelling gives her all the skills necessary to pay a fitting tribute to such a legendary artist.
