Jazz&Jazz YouTubes Featuring The Sopranos at The Walnut Tree


The Sopranos is an exhilarating six piece jazz band, formed in 2015 by
reeds men
Chris Pearce and Andy Leggett.

Joseph Elliot Trudgeon

They play a wide variety of swinging jazz with influences ranging from New Orleans, to Arlo Guthrie, via Sydney Bechet, Johnny Dodds and Jimmy Noone.

I was privileged to film them at Tad Newton’s Walnut Tree lunchtime session on
Sunday, 5th November.
I’m pleased to present here three lesser known numbers, somewhat in keeping with Guy Fawkes Day. As was the setting against a shadowy backdrop merging with the beams of the setting sun and the glare of the stage spotlight. Evocative in effect.

Chris, Andy and Joseph

I have also included “Doctor Jazz” featuring rising young jazz musician,
Joseph Elliott Trudgeon, on vocals and guitar.
