Jeremy Sassoon is one of the UK’s most in-demand singer/pianists, captivating audiences with his natural, soulful voice, a distinctive piano style and a repertoire of his arrangements of jazz and blues standards. He is the UK's foremost artist specialising in the music of Ray Charles. His big band Ray Charles Project has headlined Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The Jazz Cafe, Bluesfest, Wigan International Jazz Festival & Manchester Jazz Festival. The late, great Ray Charles produced an immense repertoire of memorable tunes spanning several decades, and 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, Hardhearted Hannah,).
