Jean Darke RIP

January 28, 1933 – March 4, 2021

Founder of Jazz at St Giles, our lovely friend and Musical Inspiration, Jean Darke, passed from us on March 4 2021 after a short illness. The JASG team will hope to continue her work when conditions allow. We trust that one day soon, we can all get together to celebrate a remarkable life and commitment to music and in particular, the jazz she and her beloved husband, Geoff, loved so much.

If you wish to donate to the St. Giles’ Project 900 in memory of Jean, please visit our donations web page and follow the instructions there.

Our Patron: Jacqui Dankworth


As from 2019, Jacqui Dankworth, one of the most highly regarded vocalists in the UK, has graciously agreed to be our patron.

2021 Programme

We are planning to have concerts in the autumn, possily a mixture of live and online if numbers are restricted.

Watch this space! Join our JASG mailing list  and we will let you know as soon as we can!

Pete Oxley and friends have made a great series of videos in their barn featuring singer Pandora Dewan

Here’s a great video from one of our favourite Big Bands – The Oxford University Jazz Orchestra – so sorry we won’t be hosting you for a while, but let’s hope one day we can again.

And another from the same source – recorded in isolation:

And from 2017 – My Funny Valentine

Let’s hear it too for the Donut Kings – another band that we hope to see in the flesh again as soon as we can! (Requires web-based Facebook login to be active)
