The Jazz Repertory Company presents the follow up to the highly successful 100 Years of Jazz in 99 Minutes. The new show follows the same format – starting at the beginning of jazz and coming right up to date, but this time around it is a completely new selection of music.

Audiences loved the first show but inevitably, when cramming so many goodies into such a confined space there were going to be some favourites left out so we’ve gone some way to remedy this with the latest historical journey through the decades.

This time the band starts off in 1902 with High Society and winds its way to the present day and there are many fascinating features along the way. We show you how the rhythm section gradually changed its style from the 1920s through to be-bop in just one number. We perform I’m In The Mood For Love à la sexy Julie London, the scintillating Charlie Parker and then the scatting King Pleasure and we give you a tour de force performance of St Louis Blues that takes in every style of jazz in an extraordinary arrangement featuring Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, Cannonball Adderley, Kenny Ball, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock!

The multi-instrumentalist sextet swaps instruments around with indecent haste and the band members take it in turns to fill in the short gaps with fascinating tittle tattle about the music and musicians who made the music magnificent.

It’s hugely entertaining and not to be missed.
