Featuring guitarists Louis Thorne & Humfry Finkel, along with violinist Nathan Hayward, expect to hear classics from this genre, including Minor Swing and Nuage, as well as jazz standards from the era such as Sweet Georgia Brown, Avalon, Lime House Blues, and Blue Skies.

At this dinner jazz event at Gonville Hotel in Cambridge, enjoy a two-course meal, served partly before the performance with dessert served in the break, and soak up the classic sounds of Paris in the pre-war era.
