Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made available on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events.

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

The Band

Edana Minghella - vocals
Mike Smith - piano
Lee Goodhall - sax
Pete Maxwell - bass


Sunday saw Edana Minghella appearing in the Quay Arts Theatre named after her late brother. Timed to co-incide with the 100trh anniversary of her birth Edana performed a tribute to the late Billie Holiday.

Supported by Mike Smith on piano, Lee Goodall on sax and Pete Maxwell on bass Edana led the sell out audience not only on a journey through the Holiday songbook but also gave the audience a brief history of Billie's short, and difficult, life.

The difficulties that Billie encountered were often reflected in her music which can often be difficult to interpret. Edana's performance more than met expectations and tleft the audience applauding for more.
