17th Jan – best session so far, organised by Sarah Gray over in the North East. A feisty group of singers with a variety of talents ranging from scatting, perfect swing drumming on a biscuit tin and saucer, improv performance involving coal scuttle and imaginary fire, and great duets on Ain’t Misbehavin, Equinox and Walkin and Talking.

Can’t wait til the next one.

Led by Jilly Jarman and Bryony Jarman-Pinto.

Improv Choirs

BlueJam has been running an Improv Choirs programme under the direction of Jilly Jarman since 2010 with a continuous group in Penrith and partner choirs in North London and Brampton. In 2015 a new choir run by Bryony Jarman-Pinto has started in Edinburgh.

For adults with any type of voice working in any genre, these choirs are open to all to experiment and enjoy the freedom of generating your own vocal ideas within a safe and supportive group.

We tend to start with jazz, blues and world genres for ease of access but allow ourselves free rein in how we manipulate the sounds and create the music.
