Pianist Sultan Stevenson is one of the fastest emerging young artists on the London jazz scene. His trio is already established as an outfit to catch when billed to play live and is being tipped for success on national and international stages. He is releasing his much-anticipated debut album 'Faithful One' on Whirlwind Recordings in March of 2023. In the summer of 2023 Sultan's trio are embarking on UK wide tour of the release.


“His way of placing silences and making a simple four-note lick grow into something significant showed an incipient master at work.”

The Telegraph

Sultan's approach to composition and playing has already been compared to that of McCoy Tyner and Esbjörn Svensson Recently, his trio has played standout gigs at Jazz re:freshed, the Vortex and the Jazz Café where the band opened for the great Billy Cobham. Their PizzaExpress gig during the 2021 EFG London Jazz Festival was a sell-out.
