The Mark Jennett Trio

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 21 st July 2019

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

"Soulful and exuberant" (Time Out) jazz vocalist Mark Jennett and his stellar band return to PizzaExpress with a new show. Mark is widely praised for his ability to seek out the emotional heart of a lyric and “improvise in a manner that brings to mind Mark Murphy” (Jazz Rag). Join Mark and his world-class musicians — Rob Barron (piano) and Geoff Gascoyne (bass) — as they reinterpret classic and lesser-known 20th century standards. Mark has received glowing reviews for his performances of songs from writers as diverse as Cole Porter, Randy Newman, Frank Loesser and Laura Nyro.  As adept at energetic swing as he is at lyrical balladry, his music embraces a wide range of styles from gospel and hip hop grooves to bossa nova and sophisticated jazz-pop.
