St George is to host the seventh Imperial Wharf Jazz Festival on Thursday 15th & Saturday 17th September at London's leading riverside destination.

After the resounding success of previous years, St George is hosting the annual free Jazz Festival at Imperial Wharf featuring some of the world's most creative jazz musicians.

The two day programme will begin on Thursday with the versatility and unique approach of the award wining Saxophonist Soweto Kinch Quartet with the Brit Award nominated Carleen Anderson.

The entertainment will continue on Saturday with the multi award winning vocalist and song writer Nina Ferro, leading into the afternoon with Sonny Black & Friends exquisite Blues based band with influences from various genres such as Jazz and Country along side the 'Gypsy Punk' sound of Mano de Dios. The Saturday evening will welcome the Indo-Jazz sound from Arun Ghosh Quintet with their contemporary Jazz attitude and the return of the critically acclaimed British Jazz singers Liane Carroll. As well as a performance from Robin Jones & King Salsa, a 13 piece Latin band driven by a rhythm and brass section, promising to provide a lively atmosphere to end the festival. Opening this year's event will be the Bombay Baja Brass Band providing a carnival atmosphere.

Located at the heart of Imperial Wharf, the Jazz Festival provides outstanding views along the river Thames, creating a great atmosphere where diners can enjoy a range of culinary delights from Me Love Sushi, a range of Lebanese dishes from Yamal Alsham, the taste of Thailand in Saran Rom, Indian flavours from Spice of India, as well as the highly popular Young's Waterside bar and restaurant.

The Jazz Festival has been programmed and produced in partnership with St George by leading event production company ESIP, also behind the international concert series 'Made in the UK' and the Global Mix record label.
