Autumn 2018 Jazz concert
1 December, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Jazz Choir and Jazz Ensemble Concert: Saturday 1 December 2018, 7.30pm @ St Andrew’s Fulham Fields, Greyhound Rd, London W14 9SA
Let Addison Singers Jazz Choirs take you on a musical journey of evolution from Spirituals, early Jazz and Gospel to recent hits. Compare the spirituals Precious Lord Take my Hand and Soon and Very Soon to the modern hit Rise Up. Hear the Gospel/Spiritual influence in songs Lean on Me and We Shall Overcome. Stuff Like That There has the lilting beat belonging to Boogie Woogie and The Jitterbug performed in the Wizard of Oz, a distinct Ragtime influence. One can trace the harmonies and arrangements of Swing-feel songs Old Devil Moon and I’m Walking to songs played by the big bands of the 30s and 40s.
Whatever their lineage, the songs selected for you in our Spirit of Jazz concert will uplift your soul and set your toes a-tapping. Join us in this joyous celebration designed to entertain the whole family. Our 50 strong Womens Choir is joined by our smaller auditioned mixed voice Ensemble and accompanied by a terrific band of talented jazz musicians.
