Jay Rayner Quartet announces biggest gig to date.

Join us, and special guests, at Cadogan Hall, London on 17 November 2017

So, we are releasing our first live recording, as announced here. And that demands a bit of a celebration. Ours will be at our biggest gig to date, part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, at the glorious Cadogan Hall, close to London’s Sloane Square on 17 November 2017. Like the recording it will be a raucous night of food and agony: of songs from the food and drink repertoire and others that draw on my experiences of growing up with a mother who was an agony aunt and sex-advice columnist – because the lyrics to so many blues tunes sound like letters to a problem page.

We’re also thrilled to announce that we’re supported by the brilliant trumpeter and singer Pete Horsfall, a key figure in the renowned Kansas Smitty’s, and an extra-ordinary performer, with a bitter-sweet voice to lift your heart.

Tickets are on sale now, so please buy early and often. We would love to see as many of you who have followed us to this point there as possible. Until November…

 

There’s more on the album, released September 8, in the post above this on my blog.
