The only history of jazz from its Ragtime birth to the present day - in 99 hilarious, musically brilliant, historically fascinating minutes.

"The musical equivalent of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, in which none of the major musical soliloquies gets left out." Alyn Shipton (Radio 3's Jazz Library, The Times )

The first ever show to encompass the history of jazz from its beginnings in Ragtime through to the present day. The six multi-instrumental jazz virtuosi create a highly entertaining journey through the decades taking in everything from New Orleans to Be Bop, Swing to Latin, Hot to Cool, from Chicago and New York to around the world. An A to Z of jazz’s biggest names from Louis Armstrong to Joe Zawinul interspersed with fascinating stories from history.

100 Years of Jazz in 99 Minutes, the sell out hit show seen around the world, from London's Cadogan Hall to Barbados, featuring the music of many of the legendry names in jazz history, including: Scott Joplin • Buddy Bolden • Louis Armstrong • Sidney Bechet • Bix Beiderbecke • Jelly Roll Morton • Fats Waller •Gene Krupa • Benny Goodman • Duke Ellington • Johnny Hodges • Count Basie • Lester Young• Dizzy Gillespie• Charlie Parker • Chet Baker • Quincy Jones • Abdullah Ibrahim.

Performed by: Pete Long: saxophones, flute, trumpet Enrico Tomasso: trumpet, trombone, vocals Nick Dawson: piano, clarinet, vocals Dave Chamberlain: bass, guitars, banjo, piano, drums Richard Pite: drums, sousaphone, double bass Georgina Jackson: vocals, trumpet.

"Listening to this remarkably versatile small band of musicians tackle the contemporary jazz of Abdullah Ibrahim with the same fervour and intensity as they produced for Miles Davis's "Kind of Blue" or Sidney Bechet's 1920s romping New Orleans jazz was a tremendous experience."
Alyn Shipton (Radio 3's Jazz Library, The Times )

“In Pete Long, reeds player, raconteur, bandleader and all-round wit, we have a genuine home-grown treasure.”
Clive Davis (The Times)

"Amazingly, Pite’s small-but-perfectly formed quintet does exactly what it says on the flyer. Their pell-mell virtuosity enables them to cross the decades and vault the stylistic hurdles with ease. Genuinely needs to be seen to be believed. Don’t miss out!"
Peter Vacher (Jazz UK)
