Jazz @ Green Note presents… Singers night double bill with Ella Hohnen-Ford and Irini Arabatzi

Ella Hohnen-Ford will lead a jazz/ cross genre quartet with arrangements of songs she loves and the band’s own compositions written for this specific group. It will be a friendly and warm evening of exciting improvisation and interaction featuring a vibrant young group of up and coming jazz musicians currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music and Guildhall. With such a wide range of influences, we hope that the set will have a palatable sound that appeals to all music lovers, surpassing the confinements of a genre.

Greek singer Irini Arabatzi will be bringing her jazz combo to the Green Note. Arabatzi moved to Glasgow in 2016 and has performed on BBC Radio 3 with Euroradio Jazz Orchestra directed by Tommy Smith and with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra performing the music of trumpeter Kenny Wheeler. This evening she’ll present reworkings of traditional Greek and classical pieces alongside creative arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions from the trio.
