Jeremy has headlined “The A-Trane” Jazz Club in Berlin, was the headline act at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club (London) during the London 2012 Olympics and was a featured artist on Jazz FM’s Discovery Show. 2015 starts with a sold out quartet gig at Pizza Express in Soho and a booking at the prestigious Cadogan Hall for his 17-piece Ray Charles Big Band.

Sipping a mint julep, former Psychiatric Doctor Jeremy Sassoon coolly opened an exhilarating set paying tribute to the music of Ray Charles, his debut at Ronnie Scott’s. A compilation of hits and lesser-known tunes, Sassoon and his band presented a well-arranged, well-executed 80 minutes of music. Many of the arrangements came from jazz saxophone master Iain Dixon, making the most of the stars of the band: Winston Rollins on trombone, Martin Shaw on trumpet and the superb Mike Smith on drums.
