Epic gig with Cecilia Stalin last week!

BF18BlaCcAA3P3r 150x150 Epic gig with Cecilia Stalin last week! Jam nights in londonFirstly not only were we lucky to have Cecila Stalin down at the Hoxton jam and privileged to play her music but also we had Laurie Low on drums. It was an epic and packed out night!

Cecila started her set with Bogaloo Boy which is a great Jazz soul number and then after playing an amazing selcetion of other tunes we ended by playing Step Like a Giant, which is Cecilia’s own take on John Coltrains version of Giant steps.

Paul Jordanous also joined us last Wednesday on House Keys and Trumpet, along with the rest of the Hoxton Jam crew (Oli, Samer & Alex playing Sax, Bass & Guitar)

Laura Bartholomew and Sarah O’Brien shot some footage of the night too, so stay tuned for some Youtube clips soon !

Alexis our house guitarist just about made the jam as he nearly got stuck in France after being on a short tour with Gizelle Smith, as on the way back to the UK the Snow was so bad that they cancelled all Eurostar trains from Paris for a few days.

We have a very special Hoxton Jam next week as Cecilia Stalin will be doing a short set at the Hoxton Jam, we are very excited about having her down next week.

Swedish born London resident Cecilia Stalin’s breakthru came with Nu Jazz act Koop “Waltz For Koop” ft on Woody Allen’s “Match Point” film soundtrack. Cecilia has done live shows with The Streets, Cinematic Orchestra, recording collabs with Daz-I-Kue, & has had music out on labels as Compost, Wagram, Jazz FM & Universal Music.
She has also worked with Reggie Workman’s Coltrane Ensemble.

Check out her new project “Step Like A Giant” to get a taste of her sound !
