Twickenham Jazz Club's Past Gigs

“The Magic Of Duke Ellington” with Malcolm Earle Smith Quartet

Tonight we celebrate the music of the great American pianist, composer and band leader Duke Ellington (1899-1974) who’s influence on the world of Jazz, classical and popular music cannot be underestimated. Everyone knows an Ellington Song even if they do not realise that he composed it, such is the endearing level of their enduring charm.

So come along and enjoy some of your favourites and discover some new songs too.

Malcolm Earl Smith

Trombonist, vocalist and passionate educator Malcolm has been performing and sharing his knowledge of Jazz for more than 30 years. He is Senior Jazz Lecturer and Teacher Jazz Trinity Laban Conservatoire and as a performer has a distinctive swinging style that “breathes new life into old standards with huge flair” (Dave Gelly, The Guardian).

Tonight he appears with some of his favourite musicians.

So forget the January Blues and a great time will be enjoyed by us all.
