Next Janet's Jazz Night

Terence Collie
An energised Cafe Posk was treated to a Duncan Eagles inspired set that owed more to his jam busting roots than recent Brit-wave compositions. Eagles cut his teeth on a diet of jazz jams, alongside the best musicians of his generation he honed his skills in the gladiatorial dens of Kingston-upon-Thames and Streatham. Eagles is now a comfortable and polished performer, perfect for nights such as these, but do not miss the opportunity to see him push the boat into deeper waters with his trio Partikel. One tune penned by his own hand is worth two from the Jazz bush.

Becky Morse

You might not know the name nor the voice of Becky Morse, but here is a woman who loves taking risks. It would have been easy to play safe in a challenging environment such as this but Morse eschewed the usual vocal fare. Yes there was a Jobim crowd pleaser but also the more ambitious Spain from Chick Corea. Becky Morse is a woman of many talents, when not singing in London's nightspots she is a script supervisor on some of the UK's best TV and Film productions. If you've watched Mr Selfridge, Line of Duty, Broadchurch, Black Mirror, Silent Witness, Holby City or EastEnders then you'll probably have witnessed her work.

Janet McCunn
The very popular series of Janet’s Jazz Nights are hosted by Janet McCunn and fabulous house band led by Terence Collie  and feature a first set with a special guest instrumentalist followed by a guest vocalist joining Janet for the second set. The third and final set is a jam session so all can come and sing and play. Just put your name on the list! These are fun and friendly social evenings with a Jam Session at the end…all musicians welcome.
