"Movie songs like these provide good material for the best jazz singers. Joanna Eden and her first-class band had a ball with them ... and so did the audience!"

JAZZ AT THE MOVIES is a unique jazz group formed specifically to interpret movie themes and soundtrack songs taken from a wide-range of silver screen sources both familiar and obscure. Their refined dramatic and jazz sensibilities produce sounds that celebrate the meeting point of songcraft and swingcraft.
With a reputation for vibrant music, deep repertoire and droll presentation, JATM have become a regular sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s, St James Theatre, the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room and many jazz clubs, theatres and Arts Centres throughout the UK.
JATM features evocative vocals by acclaimed singer JOANNA EDEN, bewitching saxophone and clarinet from star reedsman of the John Wilson Orchestra MARK CROOKS and atmospheric textures and grooves from CHRIS INGHAM (piano), ARNIE SOMOGYI (bass) and GEORGE DOUBLE (drums).
