The event, which is a regular sell-out at Ronnie Scott’s and the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room will come to St Mary's on December 19.

The group features evocative vocals by acclaimed singer Joanna Eden, bewitching saxophone and clarinet from Mark Crooks (of the John Wilson Orchestra) and atmospheric textures and grooves from Chris Ingham (piano), Arnie Somogyi (bass) and George Double (drums).

The group puts their own spin on classic movie themes and soundtrack songs from silver screen sources both familiar and obscure.
