A message from The Hampstead Jazz Club
“The Hampstead Jazz Club and Jazz FM are very sorry that this event can’t go ahead as planned, as we were supporting musicians in the jazz community and raising funds for the Hampstead Jazz Club musicians’ support fund. We do hope you will continue to support us on this rescheduled date.
The reformatted event on Saturday 13 March 2021 will feature the same main line-up of great artists and we will be celebrating the return of Live Music Events in a showcase of perfectly mixed cocktail classics with a twist from an eclectic array of artists.”
We are doing our utmost to support the national effort in reducing the spread of coronavirus and the health and wellbeing of all our visitors, staff members and visiting performers is our number one priority.
Existing tickets for the 21 November and 19 December dates will be valid for the rescheduled date. If you are unable to make the new date, please contact the box office on 020 7730 4500 or via our online form and a member of our team will assist you.

Hampstead Jazz Club in association with Jazz FM proudly presents A Very Special Evening Of Jazz.
Hosted by Jazz FM’s Nigel Williams, A Very Special Evening Of Festive Jazz 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.
With a silky-smooth voice and an emotional depth that belies his age, Sam Griffiths is rapidly earning a reputation as one of the most impressive young singers to have emerged from these shores in many a year. Having built up a burgeoning fanbase via Instagram @samsingsswing, he undoubtedly looks set to step into the spotlight in 2021.

Having worked with everyone from Gregory Porter to Dionne Warwick and appeared everywhere from Ronnie Scotts to the Royal Albert Hall, Freddie Gavita has built a reputation as one of the world’s most versatile and virtuosic jazz trumpet players.
