Cheek to Cheek

Joanna Eden and Enrico Tomasso celebrate Ella and Louis

July 10th, 2021. Lord Pirbright's Hall.

Two socially distanced shows
6pm   and   8.30pm

Seating will arranged to reflect your bubble/group's booking.

Six-time British jazz awards winner, trumpeter Enrico Tomasso  met Louis Armstrong as a child, and brings true affection and a wealth of knowledge to this celebration of the musical union of two Titans of 20th century jazz.

 
Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong's legendary and long-lived music partnership was full to the brim with love, humour and effortless mastery of their respective instruments. Their duets on songs like "Let's call the Whole Thing Off ", "Cheek to cheek "and "A fine Romance" became classics.
 
As a lifelong Ella fan, Joanna Eden has toured her "Embraceable Ella" show all over the world garnering responses like "bloody marvellous" from Dame Cleo Lane and a standing ovation from Ella's own archivist Jon Harris of the Smithsonian Institution.
Joanna and Enrico are backed by Chris Ingham on piano, Jerome Davies on bass and drummer, Richard Pite.
