Jazz at Carnegie Hall

Venue: Cadogan Hall

In recent years the Jazz Repertory Company has presented sell-out concerts at Cadogan Hall and around the UK recreating the famous Benny Goodman Carnegie Hall concerts of 1938 and 1939 (when he shared the stage with Glenn Miller).

In this new production we turn our attention to many of the great names in jazz history who have performed in America’s most famous concert hall, beginning in 1912 with the extraordinary sounds of the almost all but forgotten star of early jazz, James Reese Europe.

We’ll be featuring great big band music from, amongst others, Louis Armstrong, Woody Herman and Stan Kenton. We conclude with Miles Davis and Gil Evans on stage in the ’60s (a teaser for our Miles Davis and Gil Evans show for the London Jazz Festival in November 2017).
