Hampstead Jazz Club in association with Jazz FM proudly presents Jazz On A Summer’s Evening.
Hosted by Jazz FM’s Nigel Williams, Jazz On A Summer’s Evening will take place in front of a socially distanced audience and will be streamed live around the world, showcasing a perfectly mixed cocktail of classic jazz with a festive twist from an eclectic array of artists including Carroll Thompson, Jo Harrop, Tara Minton and Paul Lee. Plus some special guest appearances to be announced.
After what has been an incredibly difficult year for musicians in the jazz community, all profits from live streaming ticket sales will go to the Hampstead Jazz Club musicians’ support fund.
Jazz FM will broadcast the concert shortly after the event. You can listen in across the UK on your digital radio, smart speaker, on DTV, and on the app.
Known the world over as The Queen Of Lover’s Rock, Carroll Thompson first burst into the spotlight 40 years ago with her ground-breaking million-selling debut album, Hopelessly In Love. Having worked with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Michael Jackson, Thompson is one of the most unmistakable voices in music. She will be showcasing songs from her forthcoming Where Did Our Lovers Go, a celebration of her lifelong love of jazz.
Perhaps best known for his unforgettable performance of Stand By Me at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Paul Lee’s deliciously soothing gospel tones are the perfect tonic for these difficult times
Having recently received a raft of rapturous reviews for her Weathering The Storm album, Jo Harrop is one of the brightest new stars in the jazz universe. Described by BBC 6 Music’s Iggy Pop as “a very fine jazz singer,” she has a velvety voice that can melt the stoniest of hearts.
Having cut her teeth working with everyone from Melbourne Opera to Björk, Australian-born singer and jazz harpist, Tara Minton is the missing link between Joni Mitchell and Dorothy Ashby. She has just released the critically acclaimed Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid, an astonishingly adventurous impressionistic dreamscape of an album.
