We are excited to be previewing our Autumn tour production of “Paris in a Jazz Age” at the Riverhouse Barn, Walton-on Thames.
A musical journey through the vibrant Parisian jazz scene of the 20’s, 30’s & 40’s
A hot jazz sandwich of french chanson, gypsy jazz tunes, early swing and American songbook classics popular in Paris in the Jazz Age spliced with anecdotes, & tales from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Why not dress vintage, don on your beret, and join us for a special night not to be missed!
Jazz vocalist & actress Airlie Scott (Pronto Swing, UK, Europe, Westend, Broadway theatre credits) joined by the melodic playing & captivating vocals of clarinetist/singer Alice Mary Jelaska & early swing accents of hot cornet player Leigh Henson (Mardi Gras band) with a hot rhythm section- fiery, melodic playing of hot jazz guitarist Andrew Ruiz Palma (La Bouche Manouche, Bright Stars of Jazz) & the highly sort after hot club guitarist David Ahmed (The Hot Club de Londres) & top London double bass player Alan Gibson.
“The Hot Jazz Vagabonds delighted the audience with French chanson, American Songbook standards & jazz gems. The highly effective rhythm section lent itself perfectly to the dramatic & talented vocal style of Airlie Scott”
Tad Newton, Walnut Tree Jazz Club
“Swinging music from the 20s, 30s and 40s perfectly suited our event. A mix of swing, hot jazz, vintage numbers…can’t wait to have them back.”
