NYJO Presents…The Ellie Bignall Band + Tom Syson/Jacky Naylor Duo
25th July 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
In the second of our NYJO Presents series, which gives a platform to our main band members for their own projects, NYJO is delighted to welcome vocalist Ellie Bignall and trumpeter Tom Syson to regular NYJO haunt the Spice of Life.
Opening the evening will be top young trumpeter/vocalist Tom Syson in duo with pianist Jacky Naylor – winner of the 2015 Birmingham Conservatoire Composition and Arranging Prize – performing the music most associated with legendary west-coast jazz icon Chet Baker.
Ellie Bignall then brings her well-honed brand of swinging jazz to the stage, influenced by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Anita O’Day.
