Wednesday 10th November 2010 saw Serious' production of 'Jazz in the House' at the House of Commons take place. The event, which has now become a staple event in the musical calendar saw people from across the World of Music gather to celebrate the benefits music brings to our soicety. The Pavilion Terrace was the venue, Serious the organisers, whilst Peter Conway Management provided the music.
Kicking off the nights proceedings were speeches from Michael Connarty MP; Roger Wright, Controller of BBC Radio 3; Moira Sinclair, Arts Council England; Ed Vaizy MP, Minister for Communication, Culture and the Creative Industries and rounding off was Claire Whitaker, Director of London Jazz Festival.
Then came the music. PCM's very own Alex Wilson Trio featuring Soweto Kinch got the party going in typically spectacular style. Michael Connarty MP then gave a brief thank you speech to those who had made it out before introducing the next of PCM'sacts, James Morton. James took to the stage with his funky grooves with backing provided by Davide Mantovani on double bass and Frank Tontoh on drums and had the MPs tapping their feet while sipping their vino.
