Joanna Eden presents a 'labour of love' show celebrating the music of her vocal hero Ella Fitzgerald with the help of the 78 RPM Big Band. Joanna launched Embraceable Ella to much acclaim at the London Jazz Festival and has since been touring this heart-warming collection of songs with various ensembles.
Only a Big Band can recreate all of Ella’s diverse styles and 78 RPM Big Band led by saxophonist Julian Landymore is one of the UK’s finest! Together they mine the rich seam of Ella Fitzgerald's unrivalled canon with humility, style, pizazz and obvious deep affection.
Joanna, also famous for being the long-time mentor of Sam Smith, performs regularly at Ronnie Scott’s and has shared stages with Jamie Cullum and the Buena Vista Social Club.
