Details

Blessed with a rich voice and superb sense of swing, critically-acclaimed jazz singer Kevin Fitzsimmons explores songs by cool jazz artists such as Sergio Mendes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Mel Torme, Nancy Wilson and Ramsey Lewis. He also performs some inspired new jazz re-workings of songs from pop hit-makers of that period - from The Beatles, The Kinks and Burt Bacharach, to Ray Charles and Joni Mitchell.

His band's unstoppably swinging musicians - described by Jazzwise as “the cream of UK straight-ahead jazz musicians, solid and groove aplenty” - promise to keep you on the edge of your seat. Award-winning pianist Leon Greening is alongside some of the UK jazz scene’s potential future stars, bassist Conor Chaplin, and drummer Lloyd Haines. So get set for an exciting evening of top jazz from some of the best in the U.K.
