Jazz Divas Third Series @ St James Theatre, London
(Published: February 02, 2016)

Thursday JAZZ DIVAS 2016 @ St James Theatre

The third Jazz Divas series from JBGB Events in the company of four a-list female jazz stylists will take place very soon at St. James Theatre, London, and is the greatest all-star line-up yet.
The 2014 series with Gabrielle Ducomble, Georgia Mancio, Jacqui Dankworth and Tina May was a sparkling first divas presentation.

The 2015 series, with Elaine Delmar, Jacki Hicks, Polly Gibbons and Sarah Gillespie received enthusiastic support.

This 2016 series brings together the delights of Joanna Eden, (fresh from her sold out performance of the music of Ella Fitzgerald at St. James in the London Jazz Festival), Clare Teal, (leaving her big band behind, making her debut in the intimate club like atmosphere of the St. James Studio) Norma Winstone (undoubtedly one of the UK's most innovative performers) and the irrepressible Claire Martin ( who with another sold out performance opened the London Jazz Festival at St. James last November)

These wonderful performers are unquestionably the four leading female jazz singers in the UK. To have them all performing in this single series at St. James Studio makes this one of the hottest must have tickets on the 2016 London jazz scene.

Joanna Eden with Alan Barnes & Chris Ingham February 25th
A much requested return to St. James for Joanna Eden, Sam Smith's vocal teacher, following her series of spectacular sell out concerts across 2014, with Jazz at The Movies and her presentations of the music of Joni Mitchell & Ella Fitzgerald.
Here she performs selections of not only well established, easily recognised favourites, but also her original songs, with a theme and variations streak. Joanna is supported by two icons of British jazz, Alan Barnes & Chris Ingham with his trio.

Clare Teal with Jason Rebello March 31st
Clare Teal is one of the UK's most celebrated and much loved jazz singers, as well as a prolific recording artist and popular BBC Radio 2 broadcaster. To date she has recorded and released 13 albums to public and critical acclaim. Her stunning voice, encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz, swing and big band music, and her innate warmth and wit have made Clare one of the most sought after singers and broadcasters in the country. For her debut at St.James she is accompanied at the piano by the outstanding jazz composer and accompanist Jason Rebello

Norma Winstone with Gwilym Simcock April 28th
Arriving on the scene a while back as an avant-garde musician, continues to delight audiences as an evergreen, in demand singer, with a litany of must have recordings. Not only a singer of consummate style and quality, being awarded BBC Jazz Awards best vocalist and Parliamentary Jazz Awards Best Vocalist 2015, she also composes witty, delightful lyrics, among which "Ladies in Mercedes" has become a universally enjoyed jazz standard. Awarded the MBE for her services to jazz.
For her debut at St. James, Norma is accompanied at the piano by the sensitive style of Gwilym Simcock
