The 1920s, or the Jazz Age, was one of the most thrilling decades in modern history. Nowhere is this era better described than in Echoes of the Jazz Age, F Scott Fitzgerald’s famous essay on the Roaring Twenties, nor more wondrously evoked than in John Bell, Simon Tedeschi and Blazey Best's performance of the same title, in words and music.

Centred around Fitzgerald’s essay, with sizzling quotes from Mae West, Groucho Marx, and Dorothy Parker, and poetry by T.S Eliot, the performance features the irresistible piano music of Scott Joplin, Louis Armstrong and James P Johnson, and songs by George Gershwin, Ray Henderson and Fats Waller.
