London Tap Jam band leader Michèle Drees will be appearing with her trio and tap dancers Adele Joel and Scott Cripps at AnniesJazz in Southend.

Michele says;
"Rhythm Tap and Drumming are the things that set my soul on fire...they are from the same family. Using Rhythm as my starting point, I incorporate tap as a percussion instrument in my compositions. This deep-rooted connection between drums and tap is the area I am pushing and exploring through this projectTap is visual Jazz.  It is improvisation and melodic phrases but created visually, which is incredibly thrilling for our audiences.”
