Jazz & Blues singer/pianist Jeremy Sassoon launched his solo career in 2011 with a debut album, a string of live Jazz residencies across the UK and a project tributing the music of Ray Charles.
His latest 2018 album “Jeremy Sassoon & Friends – Live”, was taken from a recording of a memorable gig at the PizzaExpress Jazz Club in London.
Jeremy regularly headlines at the “A-Trane” Jazz Club (Berlin), was the headline act at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club (London) during the London 2012 Olympics and recently played the main stage at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival 2019. He performs regularly to sell-out audiences at Pizza Express Jazz Club and the 606 Club (London) and regularly hits the festival scene with his spectacular 11 & 17-piece Ray Charles Big Band.

Love Supreme Festival – July 2019
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.
