Hampstead Jazz Club and Lateralize Records proudly present An Evening of New Jazz Fireworks hosted by Jazz FM’s Nigel Williams.

This unique concert features a mouth-watering line-up of some of the coolest names in contemporary British jazz including guitarist Chris Standring from Los Angeles, accompanied by Geoff Gascoyne on bass and a string orchestra, performing the Vinyl version of his new album ‘Wonderful World’. Singer/songwriter Jo Harrop will perform her debut original album ‘The Heart Wants’. Pianist Paul Edis will perform his solo album in full and finally, Hampstead Jazz Club’s favourite artists will perform tracks from the album ‘British Standard Time’ released on the evening featuring the vocals of Tony Momrelle and Carroll Thompson.

NB. Please note the start time.

Chris Standring – Wonderful World
One of the world’s most virtuosic jazz guitarists, Chris Standring will be performing a selection of ageless Great American Songbook numbers from his forthcoming Wonderful World album alongside his trio and orchestra. Although you can hear echoes of George Benson and Grant Green in his playing, his mellifluous sound is utterly unmistakable.

Paul Edis – The Still Point Of The Turning World
