Event Has Passed

Last Show: Friday 14 th September 2018

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Recently described as “one of the best vocal talents on today’s jazz scene”, much loved UK vocalist Edana Minghella is the kind of singer who pierces your heart. Tonight, she and her fabulous band present a set of beautifully performed songs of love and heartache from the Great American Songbook through to contemporary sounds from the likes of Joni Mitchell, Elvis and Dylan. Surrender yourself to gorgeous music and story-telling from this wonderful vocalist and world class musicians. Bring tissues! With Mark Edwards (piano), Pete Maxfield (double bass) and Lee Goodall (alto sax).

“An extraordinary artist with a beautiful and distinctive voice.” - Margaret Bryant (Devizes Arts)

“Minghella's voice has a depth and gravitas that only experience could bring.” - Vincent O’Connell (London Jazz News)

Celebrated as “flawless, stylish and captivating”, Edana’s creative and spell-binding re-imagination of well-known songs is fast becoming her signature. Together with innovative arrangements, and world class musicians, her live shows are powerful, expressive and compelling. Often sold out, they showcase her great strengths: raw emotion, a natural story-telling ability, and the power to touch her audience deeply.

Performing at festivals and jazz clubs in the UK and Europe, Edana’s talent as a mainstream jazz vocalist has been widely recognised. Her second album, All or Nothing, a collection of songs from Billie Holiday’s repertoire, was released to wide acclaim in 2016. Described as “fantastic from start to end” by Alan Musson of Jazz Breakfast, this and her debut album, Still on My Feet (2011) were both co-produced by the stellar duo Liane Carroll and award-winning music producer James McMillan.

“’All or Nothing’ is fantastic from start to end.” - Alan Musson (Jazz Breakfast)
