On Friday 10th March 2017 we gathered for an afternoon of Cool Jazz provided by the Harrow Jazz Orchestra, The Stepping Stones Jazz Band, The Ying Indraphrandhu Quartet and special guests, The Fabulous Five. 

As the audience dined on Mexican food and enjoyed cool drinks in our al fresco jazz club, the Jazz Orchestra roared into action with renditions of Peter Garbriel’s ‘Sledge hammer’, Amy Winehouse’s ‘Valerie’, ‘Route 66’ and ‘Birdland’. The Jazz Orchestra, now with 8 singers, provided an entertaining show. The Stepping Stones Jazz Band gave some storming performances of ‘Oye Como Va’ & ‘Light My Fire’.

With food, drink and CD sales from the Jazz Orchestra’s latest release, ‘Heart & Soul’ we raised a total of THB 44,000 for the Beaumont Partnership Green House Project. You can pick up a Harrow Jazz Orchestra ‘Heart & Soul’ CD for THB 300 with all proceeds going to the Beaumont Foundation.
