Last Show: Monday 25 th November 2019

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

The Sam Every Big Band makes its highly anticipated return to the prestigious PizzaExpress Jazz Club in Soho after its sell out debut performance earlier this year. Tonight they are joined by one of the leading lights on the British jazz vocal scene, Sara Colman. With a band made up of some of the brightest young talent on the music scene today, you can expect a night of brand new original arrangements of both original music and some all time classics.

The Sam Every Big Band was formed in 2018, and have since began to make their mark on the UK jazz scene with two sell out performances, including their debut at the world renowned PizzaExpress Jazz Club. The band consists of some of the top young players in the country, all of which study at either the Guildhall School of Music or the Royal Academy of Music.

Sam Every is 20 year old Arranger, Drummer and Songwriter from North Cornwall. Aged 13 he gained a full scholarship to study at the Purcell School of Music and has since gone on to further his studies at the Guildhall School of Music, where he has just entered his final year. As an arranger, he also began running the band ‘The Delegates’ in 2016, and has since steered them to over 40,000 views online as well as this year releasing their debut album. This album features 8 original songs that Sam has written and arranged especially for the band. His own big band also made their London Club debut in 2019, to a sold out crowd at the prestigious Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho Sam has performed at the BBC Proms, the Edinburgh Jazz Festival as well as sold out venues such as Zigfrid Von Underbelly and the PizzaExpress Jazz club both in Holborn and Soho.

Inspired by her love of classic songwriting and instinctive improvisational energy, Sara’s musical journey brings her jazz sensibility into roots music territory. Her profound originals sit alongside stylish arrangements, the folk-tinged worlds of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, contemporary jazz, improvisation and the Americana of Bill Frisell. Sara Colman‘s expressive songwriting blurs musical genres into her own captivating, emotional style. Until now a near-hidden talent, Sara has somehow stayed below the radar yet is regarded by her peers as one of the finest vocalists and songwriters in the UK.
