Kingsjazz has grown out of Kingsfolk. The band was asked to play for a wedding a few years ago and
that has led on to musical events such as Octoberfest at Christ Church Purley and Summer Rendezvous
at Emmanuel. In March of this year, Kingsjazz provided part of the entertainment at a concert at the
Jubilee church in Selsdon.
Autumn Leaves is a well known song, and popular with jazz players because of its simple
and predictable chord progression. It was originally a French song called ‘Les Feuilles Mortes’,
written in 1945. The music was written by a Hungarian-French composer called Joseph Kosma
who had been inspired by a piece of ballet music. The song was used in the French film
‘Les Portes de la Nuit’.
