THE JEREMY SASSOON BAND
After the success of Jeremy's early evening solo gigs, we are very happy to welcome Jeremy and his band to the club tonight!
Manchester based Jazz & Blues singer pianist Jeremy is one of the UK’s most in-demand singer/pianists. Either solo, or accompanied by his band, he captivates audiences with his natural, soulful voice, and a repertoire of his arrangements of Jazz, Blues, Groove, Fusion and Soul classics.
Jeremy has headlined sell out shows at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club and Pizza Express Soho, London and has a show at the Jazz Café. He has performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival, The Iridium Jazz Club in New York and headlines annually at Berlin’s premier Jazz Club The “A Trane”.
In 2014, he recorded his version of the Marc Cohn song “The Things We’ve Handed Down” which featured on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, reaching No. 1 in the iTunes vocal download chart.
He calls upon the services of UK’s finest musicians to deliver a great show with vibe and panache yet musical sensitivity, poignancy and dynamics. Saxophonist Iain Dixon (BBC Big Band, Michael Brecker) and guitarist Mike Walker (Impossible Gentlemen) frequently collaborate and both feature in his 11 or 17 piece show tributing the music of Ray Charles. And Martin Shaw, John Parricelli, Brandon Allen, Mick Hutton, and Derek Nash often feature in London
“London Jazz Review” said of his 2015 Pizza Express Soho gig “It’s a mark of true showmanship when a performer knows when to change the speed or the vibe, taking the audience on an emotional journey, and that is exactly what Jeremy Sassoon did at his sold-out show!”
His reviewers at Ronnie Scott’s described him as “a charming and witty front-man, one of his skills being that he can make the audience feel immediately at ease”
Musician magazine added Jeremy was "A surefire success for any jazz club.... and well-worth checking now as a recording artist... "
Don't miss this great musician and his band!
