Joanna Eden and Chris Ingham Trio with ‘Embraceable Ella’
As part of our continuing collaboration with Lincolnshire jazz we week we present Joanna Eden , Joanna has performed her jazz influenced original music all over the world and supported world-class artists including Jamie Cullum, the Buena Vista Social Club, Ronan Keating and the Blockheads.
Sir Michael Parkinson instructed his Radio 2 listeners to “seek her out” and jazz legend Courtney Pine champions her recordings on his BBC Radio 2 show, while Jamie Cullum describes her as “Brilliant!”.
She has performed live on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and Mojo Magazine has given her original albums rave reviews stating that her songs have “melody, mystery and bite!”. Time Out described Joanna as “the UK’s answer to Diana Krall and Norah Jones.”
Joanna has been a singing teacher for 12 years and is so proud that her first student Sam Smith has become an international star and highest selling debut artist in the US since records began. She began teaching Sam when he was just ten years old, coached him throughout his childhood and introduced him to songwriting, co-writing and producing his first demo tracks. She is a vocal coach for the popular music and performing arts degree courses at Anglia Ruskin University.
At this event Joanna will be showcasing her ‘labour of love’ show celebrating the music of her vocal hero Ella Fitzgerald.
From the throw-away A Tisket A Tasket which brought Ella to fame in the forties with the Chick Webb Orchestra to later songbook album classics like Porter’s Every Time We Say Goodbye and Gershwin’s Someone to Watch Over Me , Eden mines the rich seam of Ella Fitzgerald’s unrivalled canon with humility, style and obvious deep affection.
Joanna launched Embraceable Ella to much acclaim at the London Jazz Festival 2016 and will be touring this heart-warming collection of songs and anecdotes around jazz clubs and live music venues all over the UK and Europe with her world class band the Chris Ingham Trio.
