ANNOUNCING: SAM JEWISON SINGS GERSHWIN
Following his sold-out show for the EFG London Jazz Festival, Sam Jewison returns to Crazy Coqs to celebrate the 125th birthday of George Gershwin.
From popular song writing on Tin Pan Alley, to the penning of classic Broadway musicals and ground-breaking compositions for the concert hall, Gershwin’s creative genius knew no bounds. Expect to hear his best-loved songs, including “I Got Rhythm”, “’S Wonderful” and “Love Is Here to Stay”, as well as dazzling transcriptions of his “Three Preludes” and “An American in Paris”.
Sam Jewison is “a Renaissance Man in a Jazz World”, whose vocal prowess and pianistic virtuosity has seen him tour internationally. He headlined the 2020 ReGeneration Festival in Florence and the BBC Radio 3 Christmas Special in 2021. Jewison has performed at iconic London venues, including Camden’s famous Jazz Café, Westminster Abbey, and the Royal Opera House, where he made his sold-out recital debut with “The Composer in Hollywood” in March 2022. He launched his new touring show, “The Great American Songbook”, from the award-winning Nevill Holt Opera House in June 2022.
Jewison is joined by Harry Evans (double bass) and Joe Dessauer (drum kit).
