Hampstead Jazz Club and Lateralize Records proudly present An Evening of New Jazz Fireworks hosted by Jazz FM’s Nigel Williams.

This unique concert features a mouth-watering line-up of some of the coolest names in contemporary British jazz including guitarist Chris Standring (from the USA), pianist Paul Edis and singer Jo Harrop alongside a handful of Hampstead Jazz Club’s favourite artists.

For the first time, the evening will launch four new albums which will be performed live for the first time accompanied with a string orchestra conducted by Geoff Gascoyne and featuring some of the finest musicians in London.

Chris Standring – ‘Wonderful World’
One of the world’s most virtuosic jazz guitarists, Chris Standring will be performing a selection of ageless Great American Songbook numbers from his forthcoming Wonderful World album (release date 3rd September) alongside his trio and orchestra. Although you can hear echoes of George Benson and Grant Green in his playing, his mellifluous sound is utterly unmistakable.

This is the only UK performance in 2021

Jo Harrop – ‘The Heart Wants’
Jo Harrop has a chocolate and cream croon that can melt the hardest of hearts. Described by the legendary Iggy Pop as “a very fine jazz singer”, releasing her first album of original material on 10th October, The Heart Wants.

Paul Edis – ‘The Still Point Of The Turning World’
Blurring the boundaries between Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau and Claude Debussy, The Still Point Of The Turning World is an achingly beautiful, impressionistic record that wells up from places Wordsworth deemed `too deep for tears.’ Release date 10th September.

Hampstead Jazz Club Presents  ‘British Standard Time’
Musical Director, Alex Webb, presents a perfectly mixed cocktail of timeless songs performed by some of the UK’s finest singers including Jo Harrop, Queen Of Lovers Rock, Carroll Thompson and former Incognito vocalist, Tony Momrelle and introducing Luca Manning.

This album will be released on the night – 5th November.


Doors: 6:00 pm | Show: 7:00 pm
