For this special Steinway 2-Piano Festival evening show, we present four of the finest UK jazz pianists in a spectacular double bill.

Composer/pianist Robert Mitchell is a throwback to that powerful tradition of artistic mastery in pursuit of transcendence. he regularly works with the legendary Courtney Pine CBE, French saxophone great Julien Lourau, French sax innovator Stephane Payen, young saxophonist Tom Harrison, Cuban violinist Omar Puente, Miles Bould’s USONIC, Orphy Robinson’s All Stars, South African education, percussion and conflict resolution genius Eugene Skeef, and new free jazz/radical poetry group StagerLee Wonders. 

Celebrated British jazz pianist Jason Rebello was labelled a veteran by critics at 19 and over the next decade won most of the major jazz music awards. Technique, diversity and adaptability have enabled Jason to work with artists across the musical spectrum such as Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Pee Wee Ellis, Joss Stone, Madeline Peyroux, Manu Katche and recently Charlene Soraia.

One of the UK’s leading young jazz pianists, Sarah Tandy, returns to PizzaExpress Jazz Club. She has performed with some of the biggest names in UK jazz including Jazz Jamaica, Gary Crosby, Clark Tracey and Gilad Atzmon, and is a member the Camilla George Quartet.
