Sadly, due to scheduling restrictions this performance has been cancelled. With so many concert performances being rescheduled from spring 2020, The Jazz Repertory Company is supporting Cadogan Hall by re-focusing energy on remaining concerts in the The Jazz Repertory Company series.

Ticket holders are fully covered for the value of their tickets and will be contacted shortly. Customers may exchange tickets for an alternative ‘Jazz Repertory Company’ concert, request a credit to any other future performance or request a full refund. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your support during this time.

The legendary Harlem Apollo on 125th Street in New York City has played host to many of the great stars of Jazz and Rhythm and Blues and is still going strong today.  We’re going to take you back to a night in 1960 and some of the biggest names of the era recreated by three wonderful singers and a hard-driving big band.

Wayne Hernandez will be taking the role of Sam Cooke, the satin-voiced star whose big hits included Cupid and What a Wonderful World and Vimala Rowe sings Dinah Washington songs such as Mad About The Boy and What A Difference A Day Makes.

Earl Jackson, who last appeared in our show celebrating 1957 (A Jazz Jukebox), returns to reprise his role as the late, great Chuck Berry, and Pete Long leads a spectacular 17-piece big band playing the music of Lionel Hampton and Count Basie.
