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. He will be kicking off 2015 with a return to the A-Trane in Berlin and an eagerly awaited quartet gig at Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho.
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.
