Jeremy Sassoon sings and plays the Ray Charles Songbook

Jeremy Sassoon’s tribute to the music of Ray Charles captures the imagination of Jazz, Blues and Soul audiences alike. The late, great Ray Charles produced an immense repertoire of memorable tunes spanning several decades, and singer/pianist Jeremy reflects this with a set that include Ray Charles classics (Georgia on my Mind, What I’d Say, I Gotta Woman, Hallelujah I Love Her So) and some lesser known, but equally compelling musical gems from the catalogue (The Jealous Kind, I Don’t Need No Doctor, Hard hearted Hannah,)

The show has headlined Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The Jazz Cafe, Wigan International Jazz Festival, Scarborough Jazz Festival and Manchester Jazz Festival and jeremy played a storming set at our Flying High picnic at Gledhow Sports Club in 2020.

An A-List 5-piece line up will be playing the music – beside Jeremy on vocals and keyboards we have Jim Corry sax, Billy Buckley guitar, Richard Hammond bass and Craig Hanson drums.

Support (7.30-8pm) is from singer Ellen Connelly and her jazz trio with Ellen on vocals Cameron Ward piano and Billy Sims double bass (7.30-8pm)
