Jazz & Blues singer/pianist Jeremy Sassoon launched his solo career in 2011 with a debut album, a string of live Jazz residencies and a project tributing the music of Ray Charles.
In 2012 Jeremy headlined "The A-Trane" Jazz Club (Berlin), Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club (London) and he was a featured artist on Jazz FM's Discovery Show.
My new single "The Things We've Handed Down" was pick of the tunes on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs! As a result it hit number 1 in the iTunes vocal download charts. Preview & download your copy here.
Sipping a mint julep, former Psychiatric Doctor Jeremy Sassoon coolly opened an exhilarating set paying tribute to the music of Ray Charles, his debut at Ronnie Scott's. A compilation of hits and lesser-known tunes, Sassoon and his band presented a well-arranged, well-executed 80 minutes of music. Many of the arrangements came from jazz saxophone master Iain Dixon, making the most of the stars of the band: Winston Rollins on trombone, Martin Shaw on trumpet and the superb Mike Smith on drums.
