The Chris Ingham Quintet Play's Jazz At The Movies is a unique jazz group who put an irresistible spin on classic movie themes and soundtrack songs from silver screen sources both familiar and obscure.

Full of rich swing and droll anecdote, features music from many films including, The Aristocrats and The Fabulous Baker Boys, and songs by Burt Bacharach, John Barry, Leslie Bricusse, Steven Sondheim, John Dankworth, and many others.

In addition to their regular Jazz at the Movies show, when December rolls around JATM present their joyous festive set.

With their stockings full of 20th century holiday classics and curiosities, Jazz at the Movies and their Swinging Christmas show is a delightfully jazzy blend of the sublime, sentimental and plain silly - the perfect way to begin the festivities.

A regular sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s and the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, the group features evocative vocals by acclaimed singer Joanna Eden, bewitching saxophone and clarinet from Mark Crooks (of the John Wilson Orchestra) and atmospheric textures and grooves from Chris Ingham (piano), Arnie Somogyi (bass) and George Double (drums).
