East Grinstead Jazz Club
East Grinstead Jazz Club is back from lockdown with our first 2021 show this June at The Apron!
Sarah Moule and Simon Wallace on piano present The Genius of Duke Ellington
Sarah will also be performing songs from her new album Stormy Emotions, which will be available for purchase on the night.
Although Ellington was a prolific writer of classy popular songs, it is odd that no one has seen fit to devise a programme around them. Until now!
Sarah Moule and Simon Wallace have been Ellington fans since a very young age. Material by Duke will be featured alongside music by his right-hand man, Billy Strayhorn. And Ellington buffs will be excited to hear that the programme also features newly rediscovered material by another intriguing Ellington collaborator, Marshall Barer, who is rarely mentioned in all the copious appreciations of the master’s work.
“Cool, elegant, immaculate” – The Observer
“Sarah Moule stands in the very top flight of UK vocalists” – London Jazz
