The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

After decades of providing piano and musical direction for the stars, including Mari Wilson, Darcey Bussell, Michael Bublé, Damon Albarn, and Ant and Dec, John G Smith now brings his passion for jazz to the great American singer-songwriters like Billy Joel and Paul Simon in an evening of intimacy, humour and exquisite musicianship featuring the guitar wizardry of James Graydon (Westlife, Beverly Craven, Michel Legrand) and the upright bass mastery of Zoltan Dekany (Charlie Haden, Joe LaBarbara, Kei Akagi).

With influences as diverse as Randy Newman, James Taylor, Pat Metheny and Keith Jarrett, all combined with unmistakably English wit and sensibility, John and James sing some of their own songs too, creating an entertaining evening of music and warmth.
