Joanna Eden presents a ‘labour of love’ show celebrating the music of her vocal hero Ella Fitzgerald. Joanna – who mentored Sam Smith and teaches singing at ARU – launched Embraceable Ella to much acclaim at the London Jazz Festival and has since been touring this heart-warming collection of songs, accompanied by long-time collaborator, and one of the UK’s leading jazz pianists, Chris Ingham. Joanna mines the rich seam of Ella Fitzgerald’s unrivalled canon with humility, style and obvious deep affection.
“Bloody Marvellous!” – Dame Cleo Laine. “Seek her out” – Sir Michael Parkinson. “A fitting tribute to Ella... the full house clamoured for an encore!” – London Jazz News
