We are pleased to welcome Rachel back to the Chandos for another night of classic torch songs and standards.
Rachel Sutton has worked as both an actress and singer. Her rich tone and unerring sense of swing coupled with her background in theatre makes her an engaging interpreter of both classic jazz and more contemporary repertoire. She recently featured in a highly-acclaimed presentation, at London’s Cadogan Hall, of Roland Perrin’s choral work Lansky: The Mob’s Money Man.
Rachel's songbook covers a huge range from soulful ballads to great torch songs of the jazz canon. Rachel is one of the most sensitive and intelligent interpreters of a lyric on the scene – this is another great Chandos Arms evening not to be missed.
“Rachel has a powerful soulful voice and great delivery” John Etheridge
“Rachel Sutton's soaring vocals pack a power and perception which belie her years… catch her if you can.” Jazz Journal

We are delighted and honoured to welcome back guitarist Jim Mullen to the Chandos Arms in September.
Jim Mullen is a multi-award winning musician with a unique jazz style and sound, who is regarded as the high priest of the instrument by most young jazz guitarists.
Having played with Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express, appearing on the band’s first three albums together with future Average White Band drummer Robbie MacIntosh, Mullen then joined Kokomo and later toured with the Average White Band. It was while both musicians were touring the U.S. with Average White Band that Mullen met up with tenor saxophone player Dick Morrissey, and he found considerable critical acclaim as joint leader of the pioneering British jazz funk band Morrissey-Mullen. (North london locals may remember a classic series of gigs at the late-lamented Torrington pub in the 1980s.)
Jim’s appearances at Chandos Arms Jazz are always very popular and you are advised to book in advance.
