Smokey Joes' jazz Presents: Sara Colman band 'It's Coming on Christmas'

  • Smokey Joes 16 Bennington Street Cheltenham, England, GL50 4ED United Kingdom (map)

Sara Colman sings jazz in a very special way - she puts heaps of meaning into it both by using the words and by intrinsically understanding how the music works. Her ability to improvise on the spot is of the highest calibre and what a voice she has! We’ve asked Sara to come back to Smokey Joe’s Jazz in December to kick start the festive season with a very special performance celebrating the music of Canada’s First Lady of music - Joni Mitchell. This won’t be exclusively Ms Mitchell’s music but the feel of the show will be based on the vocal and musical style that the great singer’s work brought to music and jazz in particular. Joni Mitchell was well know for her collaborations with great jazz musicians - names like Jaco Pastorius, Michael Brecker and Wayne Shorter in the 70s but she has also worked on beautiful jazz standard albums in recent years produced and arranged again by great names in Jazz including ex-husband and bassist Larry Klein.

The quartet will comprise: Alex Steele (piano), Paul Jefferies (bass) and Jonathan Silk (drums).
