Following on the heels of the hugely successful Jazz at St. Giles Autumn Series, St. Giles now joins the worldwide celebrations of composer Benjamin Brittens Centenary year.

Jacqui Dankworth
Outstanding and world-renowned singer Jacqui Dankworth daughter of Dame Cleo Laine and the late Sir John Dankworth sings Brittens jazz cabaret songs as well as compositions by John Dankworth, George Gershwin and Cole Porter. Jacqui is accompanied by the equally distinguished jazz pianist and classical harpsichordist, David Gordon. Together as an acclaimed duo they have toured extensively in the UK and abroad. Jacqui also performs with her much-lauded quartet Buttery and has an extensive recorded catalogue.

The Oxley-Meier Guitar Duo


Pete Oxley, (who began his musical career in Paris before returning to the UK in 1997, where he opened the famous Spin jazz club in Oxford), plays guitar with a mind-blowing brilliance that leaves you breathless at his technique. Equally at home with both the classical and jazz repertoire, he has now released 10 critically acclaimed CDs featuring his original compositions. Nicholas Meiers unique style is a blend of Metheny-esque jazz and Turkish-inspired world music. Nick has toured extensively with his band the Meier Group, winning best band prize at the recent Juan-les-Pins jazz festival. Recent albums feature a wonderful heady mixture of Flamenco, jazz, Latin and Middle Eastern music. Together the duo will perform jazz from their newly released CD, plus their own tributes to Britten.

26 January | 7.30pm
David Gordon Trio
Back by public demand!! The David Gordon Trios inaugural concert of our Autumn Series left the audience clamouring for more. With Paul Cavaciuti (drums) and Jonty Fisher (bass), jazz pianist David Gordon rides rough-shod over the boundaries between jazz, acoustic groove and classical music, blazing a rare trail through the jazz world with an innate sense of melody and rhythmic drive. Also a renowned harpsichordist, David has performed at the BBC Proms, Carnegie Hall, and the Musikverein, Vienna, and has an extensive recorded repertoire, both classical and jazz.

The boys of St Giles all-male choir (the only one in the city outside of the University colleges) sing brilliantly at all choir-accompanied services. The boys train under their choral director Nicholas Prozzillo accompanied by organist Andrew Patterson, through the Choir Academy, from which they receive both vocal and theoretical music training. They also benet from learning the condence-building Alexander Technique. Inevitably the Academy is always looking for funding for training, purchase of music, events, etc., and we plan soon to launch a Sponsor a Choirboy scheme. Whereas funds raised from the other three concerts in this mini festival will go, as usual, towards the churchs work with the homeless, todays revenue will be passed straight to choir funds.
