Is Soho witnessing a new Jazz Age? Certainly, that's what the organisers of a new jazz festival have in mind.
Soho.Live's Jazz Week arrives this month — with more than 250 artists playing 45 shows across 15 Soho venues.
Highlights include jazz & electro-soul singer Bille Black at Soho Theatre (11 September); Collette Cooper — described as "Janis Joplin channelling Edith Piaf" at Quo Vadis (12 September); Louise Messenger recreating a 1956 set by Ella Fitzgerald at Bill's Soho Restaurant (13 September); plus late night jazz jams throughout the week.
Soho Jazz Week, runs 11-14 September. Some shows have an entrance feee; some are free but require tickets; others are free but require booking a table at the venue. Tickets and details on the website.
