Jazz from the ScreenMusic has an important role in the history of the moving image.  Jazz, with its infinite variations and invention, is the soundtrack to many films, television series and adverts.

The Cosmic Jazz Combo and special guests, The Hackney Creative Jazz Ensemble [young musicians of the next generation] present a selection of themes by composers such as Henry Mancini, Quincey Jones and Johnny Dankworth alongside some more unexpected contributions. The emphasis, however, will be on improvisation.

The Cosmic Jazz Combo is:  Dave Blackmorewoodwinds; Alison Raynerdouble bass, electric bass; Justin Pickettdrums, percussion; Gerry Huntguitar, woodwinds and violin; Steve Lodder keyboards, violin; Roger Cawkwell – woodwinds, brass and cello.
