Leee John of IMAGINATION : An Intimate Evening Friday 28 May 2021 22:00 Boisdale of Belgravia

Chart busting jazz funk that defined a generation
 
If you were around in the early 80s and jazz funk was your poison, you probably swayed to Imagination, the soul trio that lit up the UK music scene with such hits as “Body Talk”, “Just an Illusion” and “Flashback”. So why not spend an evening at Boisdale of Belgravia with Leee John, vocalist with the chart busting group, who will bring his silky vocals to the Yamaha Music London stage for two nights on 28 and 29 May.
 
“Leee represents something of a golden age for British soul and jazz funk, which contributed to one of the most diverse and vibrant periods of music history” said Boisdale founder Ranald Macdonald.
 
It was in the early 80s when Leee, along with Ashley Ingram and Errol Kennedy formed Imagination. He then fell into acting via a role in a 1983 Dr Who episode, but returned to music to make more memorable dance tracks in the 90s and 2000s, as well as touring the UK and Europe with his jazz quartet and working with Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz. Leee is an Ambassador for SOS Children’s Villages, the international charity that helps orphaned and abandoned children.
 
“It’s going to be an honour to have him on stage at Boisdale of Belgravia,” added Ranald. “I feel it will be one of those evenings when we will find it hard to stay seated.”
