J G Jazz

With 40 years of experience as a professional jazz and blues pianist and band leader, John Beckingham has drawn together a group of highly experienced musicians and vocalists from some wonderfully diverse performance backgrounds – from blues, street jazz and traditional jazz to West End musical theatre.  They all have in common a passion for the popular music of the 1920s to the early 1950s, including Jazz Standards, Swing, Latin, Blues, The Great American Songbook and the movie & musical theatre numbers of the era.  The band consists of John Beckingham (Piano and vocals), Gilly Leeper (Vocals) Phil Probert (Guitar Banjo and vocals) Keith Tolley (Double Bass and vocals) John Caplin (Saxophones and vocals) and Graham Twist (Drums).
