Among those taking to the stage as part of the 18-member band are Nikki Iles, Alec Dankworth, Paul Clarvis, Phil Lee, Henry Lowther, Noel Langley, Martin Hathaway, Pete Hurt and Jeremey Price.

The show starts 8.45pm. Tickets £8. Vortex box office: 020-7254 4097.

London Jazz Orchestra is also be playing at The Vortex April 27 and May 11.
