Jelly Cleaver and her Dream Jazz Collective completed their National Spring Tour (ninth events) at New Cross, London on 1st April 2017.
Anyone who was unable to get to any of the live shows can play catch-up with the video of her single from that program. The tour was dedicated to ANGELA DAVIS, American civil rights campaigner. This track – Angela – is a protest song with style!

Now Jelly is striving to produce her next (third) disc – working title “Cure for an Existential Crisis” – hopeful or what? Lots of lovely lyrics and great harmonies in styles from Jazz to Folk and back again, expressing thoughts and feelings for this more thinking, caring generation. Video single still undecided. I’ll keep you posted……
The Dream Jazz Collective has already performed once this year in Southampton (February 18 at the Talking Heads) and is due here again soon as another date on their 2017 mini tour, taking in venues in London, Bristol, Durham and Southampton
