Songbook Sundays...

Songbook Sundays are a new regular addition to The Apex music programme, featuring the Chris Ingham Trio with special guest singers from the world of jazz. Held in the Apex Lounge at 11.30am, on the fourth Sunday of the month, they are relaxed and informal – the perfect way to spend Sunday lunchtime!

 

The series opens with Jacqui Hicks on Sunday 26 July. Effortlessly exuding soulfulness and swing with every exquisitely turned phrase, Jacqui is one of the UK's finest singers in any genre. She is the featured vocalist with the Back to Basie Orchestra and Shakatak, and her solo release A Child Is Born is among the best jazz vocal albums of recent times.

"Beautifully crafted and controlled..." - Jazz Review.

 

On Sunday 23 August, award-winning, multi-lingual singer Georgia Mancio and tenor saxophonist Mark Crooks evoke the Getz/Gilberto era of the early 1960s. Their ‘Beauty of the Bossa Nova’ programme will feature a sensuous, jazzy blend of melodies and samba rhythms; famous pieces include 'The Girl From Ipanema', 'Desafinado', ‘One Note Samba’ and many more from the composing genius Antonio Carlos Jobim. “Taste, originality and understated eloquence” – The Observer.

 

Juliet Kelly is the guest singer on Sunday 27 September. A singer-songwriter with a string of acclaimed albums to her name, Juliet has a warm, velvety tone and expressive, passionate way with a lyric. In ‘The Divas of Jazz’, Juliet will salute the singers who have inspired and influenced her, including Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday. “Soulful, dignified, somewhat Cleo Laine-like” - The Guardian

 

The series ends with Georgina Jackson on Sunday 22 November. A vivacious, stylish vocalist and trumpeter with a sassy sense of fun, Georgina is the singer with Ronnie Scott’s Big Band and has fronted several BBC broadcasts paying tribute to Peggy Lee with the BBC Big Band, and Irving Berlin with the BBC Concert Orchestra. Her ‘Swing Selection’ dips into the Great American Songbook and swings!

 

Songbook Sundays are on 26 July, 23 August, 27 September and 22 November (there is no October show) and run from 11.30am-1.30pm.

 

Delicious food will be available to purchase, along with a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
