John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus 'for Grappelli'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 7 th September 2019

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

To celebrate 20 years together, John’s group Sweet Chorus returns to the PizzaExpress where it made it’s debut all those years ago. Formed to pay tribute to Stephane Grappelli, with whom John had a long and happy association, the band plays melodic and swinging acoustic jazz, inspired by, but not emulating the great Quintet of the Hot Club of France which featured Grappelli and, of course, the immortal Django Reinhardt. Grappelli had a questing spirit and this is reflected in the band's eclectic repertoire. John is joined by Christian Garrick (violin), Dave Kelbie (rhythm guitar) and Andy Crowdy (bass).
